Introduction: Skunk Family
Supplies: Black hooded sweatshirt, black pants, stiff black felt, white furry fabric, wire coat hanger, needle nosed pliers
--Zip up sweatshirt, and sew round piece of white furry fabric on the front. Avoid sewing over the zipper so that you can zip it down to put sweatshirt on.
--Sew long strip of white furry fabric from just underneathe the hood, to a few feet beyond back, bottom of the sweatshirt. Sew stiff black felt onto furry fabric that hangs below sweatshirt. Leave a pocket between the two pieces of fabric so that a wire coat hanger can be bent appropriately so that it will hold the skunk tail in a curved shape. Duct tape wire to the inside, bottom of sweatshirt if necessary. Sew a button to the back of the sweatshirt, and a string to the bottom of the tail. Hook the string onto the button to keep the tail up.
--Cut, and attach small felt ears to the top of hood.
--Apply face paint. We looked at "Flower" from Bambi, and tried to follow the markings on his face for our paint.
--Pull hood strings very tight, tie, and tuck into sweatshirt.
--Infant skunk costume was purchased...all other skunk costumes are homemade. I ran out of time and energy.
