- Dog straw hat
- Assorted fabrics and burlap for patches

Aleene's Pet & Owner Matching Scarecrow Costumes

Use decorative edge scissors to cut patches from different fabrics and the burlap. Cut smaller ones for the doggy overalls.

Lay out patches on each set of overalls to your liking, then glue in place with Fabric Fusion. Tip: use a thin line of glue around backs of patches, or you can even use a paintbrush to evenly brush a thin layer of glue over entire patch. Too much glue can oversaturate the fabric and cause adhesion issues.

Glue buttons onto patches and let dry.
