Now it's Jersey's turn to be the model. She's far more tolerant of clothes than Dexter is.

It took me an hour & a half to make this costume and I spent $15 to buy the craft foam. All the other stuff I scavenged from around the house.

Step 1: Tools & Supplies

Picture of Tools & Supplies
You will need – Various coloured sewing thread, a sewing needle, scissors, yellow, red & brown markers, yellow, white & black craft foam, some cheap white cloth, some white fiber stuffing, 3 red pom-poms, a slide lock, some nylon webbing, a large piece of paper, a measuring tape, a hot blue gun and a sewing machine.

You can do all the sewing by hand, if you wish, but it will take a looong time to make the costume.

Step 2: Making The Ice Cream Scoops

Step 1 - Cut 3 12″ X 12″ square pieces of white cloth. Use your red, brown & yellow markers to create the look of “sauce”.

Step 2 - Sew a red pom-pom “cherry” onto the middle of the fabric.

Step 3 - Turn the fabric over and add a handful of the fiber stuffing

Step 4 - Take two opposite corners and tie them together.

Step 5 - Tie the other two corners together. Now you have your first ice cream scoop.

 Repeat the process for to make the other ice cream scoops.

This is adorable! I really want to make this for my dog. Hopefully he won't tear it up like all the other clothes I've put on him!
