Echo the Walrus BERNINA Halloween 2011

Added Oct 16, 2011

  • Echothewalrus__grid


This is a picture of Echo dressed in her Halloween costume as a walrus. She is a 7 year old Boston Terrier and we have been doing homemade costumes for her since 2006. She’s an awesome sport. This costume was made from micro-suede, batting and linen fabric and sewn by hand, except for the fins. My sewing machine couldn’t handle the rest of the costume, too bulky. The tusks were carved from synthetic ivory. Just wanted to share her pic, Happy Halloween!

Material Notes

Synthetic Ivory, Micro-suede, linen, batting, needle/thread and lots of love.

    AHAHAH! That is such a great costume, and it fits your dog, Echo, so perfectly at first I thought it was a plush toy! Great job on fitting it perfectly to your pup!
