This Looks Like A Teddy Bear From A Distance. Then It Started Walking. Oh My, How Adorable!

Cindy Roth wanted to make a costume for her Shih Tzu named Munchkin and decided on this adorable craft project! It only took her 15 minutes to make, but is absolutely adorable! I can’t decide if Munchkin looks more like an ewok or a teddy bear!

Cindy shared how she made it: “Measure your dog in the front from feet to top of head (Munchkin is 14″). Buy a teddy bear in similar color to your dog in their size. Cut the face off, cut the bottom of the feet off, cut open the back. Take all the stuffing out except for the arms. Bear only goes on front part of their body/legs and back half is exposed. Put a string or velcro through the back behind the neck to tie/close. The bear’s arms hung down, so I sewed them up a bit higher so they stuck out to sides more instead of hanging down.”
