Homemade Cuteness -Zebras and Giraffes Plush Creations

Zebras and giraffes, oh my!

(Click on pics to enlarge)
My two girls last year decided to be these cute little zoo animals.
My oldest daughter thought of the idea when she saw the soft, plush fabric at the fabric store.
I couldn't wait to turn her ideas into animals in my sewing studio!!!
The pattern is a mixture of made-up and boutique.
I used the Children's Corner pattern for the vest (I think it's the Charlotte),
a commercial pants pattern, and copied the hoods off of a jacket they have.
I made ears and stuffed them with batting.
They loved wearing them. 
I couldn't resist making a ruffle at the bottom of these pants.
I figured she could wear them for other times with a little sweater!
The tail almost gets lost in this pic!  But it's hanging there.

Some of the neighborhood trick-or-treat gang...
This year my 8 yr old will be store-bought Hannah Montana (it's what she wanted) and my 4 yr old will be her sister's homemade costume I made a few years ago - a cute little plush pink kitty cat!  I will post those pics tomorrow or Sunday.

Hope you all have a happy and safe Halloween with lots of smiles and good times!

Those costumes are so cute! I love the ruffle at the bottom of the pants.
