Ok, so it's a zebra tail. Whatever.
So we've had this bar laying around from an old infant/toddler seat/rocking chair. I think we gave away the actual seat ages ago, but the bar hung on and was used for things like makeshift light sabers, or swords, or eating utensils. One too many poke-in-the-eyes later, I was just one step away from dropping it in the garbage when the husband had a brilliant idea: "For your next project," he says, "A tail for E!"
Now, make sure you copy and paste what we did here. The directions are pretty hard to follow:
1) cut the bar in half, 2) take the foam insides out, 3) cut off the velcro tabs, and 4) tuck one of the tails into child's tights (or if your child prefers actual clothing - shorts, trousers or skirt).
And there you have it: a Human Irish Wolfhound with a nice zebra tail (and an extra to spare)!
Can you see the resemblance?
Fierce! (I think she thinks it's more wolf than dog...)
Your very own Irish Wolfhound-slash-Zebra-hybrid will be so happy, if slightly confused about her identity.
