I thought it would be a good idea to include beagle in the holiday cheer... by making him antlers. (Hubby has a strict "no clothing for animals" belief. However, I think it can be cute)
Here is how the antlers were made...
Top stitch two cut antler pieces of felt together and repeat with the other set.
Stuff the antlers. (Add something stiff inside them, for support. I used a Q-tip in each)
Sew them onto the oval piece of felt.
Add elastic, or a tie of some sort.
Here's how it looked (above)
(our 4 point "Buck", Buck is short for beagles real name)
At this point I didn't have support inside the antlers, so they didn't stand up like they should. So, I shoved a Q-tip into each antler to make them stand right. Beagle was too stubborn to wear the antlers after adding the support (smart guy) and his big ears got a bit in the way, so I tried the next model:
she really didn't seem to mind them!
