DIY Star Wars Pet Costume: Princess Lelea.
I finished the costume for Pepito, aka Ewok, and now it was time to dress up my dog Lele. She really looks like Yoda, but she is a girl, so she had to be princess Lea. I started making her hair, using the leftovers from my husband's ripped brown shirt (that I used on Pepito's costume). By rolling the pieces of fabric, it made thicker to make the hair bun, using hot glue to attach it well. Then I started rolling on the other direction to make the bun, still using the hot glue. I left one piece longer, to make the middle part of the hair, and glued the other bun to the opposite end. I sewed in the middle to make the hair division. To make her dress, I cut a white T-shirt, on the length of her legs. I used little pieces of plush to make the arms, and glued in place. Next I folded the sleeves to cover the arms, still using hot glue. Finally I made a belt in paper and glued to the dress. I know we dressed her up for our own amusement. But I assure you it only took a few seconds. And soon she was free to go sit in her favorite spot.
