I used my sewing machine to embroider Tweedle Dee on some white fabric then I used the collar pattern from Karsyn's dress (oversized for this outfit) to cut out the collar so the words were centered. I used a yellow polo and tacked the collar on so I could cut it off and he could use the polo on regular days. I also just tacked the bow tie to one side of the collar with a snap on the other side of the collar and back of the bow tie so it would stay put. I used this bow tie tutorial
This was the Halloween/Disneyland Costume I made for my daughter. The inspiration came from a dress I found and fell in love with on Etsy but didn't want to spend the $250 for a little girls halloween costume/play dress.

For my mirrors I only had the small metal strip on the bottom holding up the mirrors that I had to contend with and it wasn't raised enough to interfere with the wood being glued down. I have seen other tutorials like this one or tutorials where they changed the plastic clips to washers and flat head screws.
I used this tutorial over at Dana Made It to make the vest
I used the tutorial over at Lilybug Designs as my inspiration for the chaps but I had to come up my own pattern. There is also this tutorial to make the chaps or there is this tutorial as well which will work well. I made a belt out of fabric and put it through the jeans belt loops and the chaps loops I made. The chaps were made out of faux leather. The vest was made out of a non-pilling fleece.
I also made mustache tattoos with my inkjet printer and silhouette machine. Add a cute pin on sheriffs badge and some handcuffs and you have a great birthday present.
