For those who don't know I have two boys, ages 9 and 12. And their current obsession is Adventure Time. It's a very silly show with enough adult humor that even we parents like it. So we've decided to do a family Halloween costume this year all based on Adventure Time characters. My youngest claimed Finn the Human and since his school had cheap Finn hats as part of a fundraiser I got him one. He's been wearing it nonstop ever since.
But my poor 12 year old has been left out, so today I finally made him a Jake the Dog hat. I used the pattern from this Finn hat instructable as a base but added Jake's ears, eyes and muzzle. I used this large image of his face for a template and then enlarged it 160% on the copier to get the size right. And I stuffed a tiny bit of batting in his nose and muzzle to give them a bit of 3 dimensionality.
And, in case your curious, my husband is going to be the Ice King and I think I'm going to be the lab-coated version of Princess Bubblegum because I'm a science-loving girl - and it saves me having to make PB's dress! ;)
