What an exciting time for Eagles (and Chiefs) fans. In my family we are cheering GO EAGLES!
I gave my sister a goose for Christmas, all decked out in fan gear to cheer on their favorite football team. He had a bit of a rough start at his new home because the same day he arrived the Eagles LOST (UH OH… and no sis it is NOT his fault). Turns out, the new goose ended up being lucky because the Eagles are headed to the Super Bowl!
I wanted it to have an official Eagles item to go with the outfit so I got this Eagles Gaitor. My nephew did an amazing job dressing the goose (i didn’t want the goose meeting his new family without any clothes on!). I ordered an applique from ebay but it didn’t come in time. Those would be a great addition too.
We also gave one to my mother in law, and even though her Broncos didn’t do too well her goose buddy sure looks cute…. btw the Broncos haven’t been doing well for several years so it definitely wasn’t this goose’ fault either.
Where To Get The Goose

Would you be interested in a pdf for this outfit instead of referring to the others? If so, please comment below and maybe I will put one together.
I hope you have enjoyed making this or any of my patterns. I would LOVE to meet your goose! Please add #snappytots when posting on social media or email a photo of your goose to [email protected].
