An old thick blanket like a comforter
Large pieces of brown felt and tan felt
Little pieces of red and yellow felt for ketchup and mustard
Some cotton pillow filling
First you cut the comforter so that it fits around your child and ties in the back. Cut a hole in the front for your child's head and arms. Then cut the brown felt in the same shape as the comforter. Sew the felt onto the comforter. Cut the red and yellow felt (in the shape of ketchup and mustard) and glue it on the front of the hot dog. Then get the tan felt and measure it like a jacket. Cut arm holes in the sides. It should look like a bun. Then put your brown pants on, then the hotdog, then the bun and put the face paint on and you are a hot dog!
