Trick or Squeak!

This was the coolest "No-Sew" costume.

My son wanted to be Alvin from Alvin and the Chipmunks.
The hardest part was trying to find a hoodie without the zipper. I thought I was going to have to find one online to order.
Then, I stumbled across this hoodie at a church yard sale about 2 weeks ago
I cut a big "A" out of yello felt and hot glued it on.
One sheet of felt was the perfect size.
I cut faux fur into a tail hot glued brown felt to the underside to hide "ugly side" (but it never showed)
I pinned the tail on between the back pockets with 2 saftey pins from the inside before he put them on.
The ears were half circles, also cut fronm the fur and lined with the felt hot glued. I tri folded them and hot clued edges down. last I hot glued them onto hair clipies so they just cliped into his already shaggy hair (and he didn't have to wear a headband.)
