Step 1: You Will Need
1. A T-shirt
4. Black leggings
5. A headband
6. A bow tie
8. Furry cloth
Step 2: Tools You Will Need
1. Glue gun
3. A needle
Step 3: Mark the T-shirt and Cut.
Draw the outline of your bodysuit onto the t-shirt with chalk. When you are happy with the shape, cut it out using scissors so that you cut front and back and end up with two identical pieces of fabric.
Step 4: Sew Around the T-shirt
Sew down the sides of the outfit and across the lower part in a way that you end up with two leg holes.
Using pins to hold the fabrics in place while you sew will ensure an even seam.
Flip it inside out when you are done so that the seams are on the inside.
Step 5: Make the Tail
Ball up your furry fabric to make a tail and sew it onto the back.
Step 6: Make the Ears
Cut an ear shape out of a piece of white paper.
Trace the ear onto a piece of cardboard and cut that out as well. Repeat this so that you have two cardboard ears.
Next, using your black leggings, trace and cutout four identical ear shapes.
Place two leggings cutouts together and sew around the edge (leaving a hole at the bottom). Flip the ear inside out. Repeat this with the other two pieces of legging so that you are left with two ear pockets.
Stuff the cardboard inside the legging ears.
Trace the ears one last time onto the furry fabric. Cut out and hot glue the furry fabric onto the front of the ears.
Attach the ears to the headband with hot glue.
Step 7: Cut the Shirt
Cut the cuffs off a white dress shirt and replace the boring buttons that are there with something more cool.
Step 8: Hop to It
Get your whole outfit together and try it on.
