These days I’m happy to be busy mom-ing, but every now and then I get the chance to indulge in something crafty… mostly during naps and after bedtime! I managed to find time to make E his first Halloween costume this year.
My husband was good enough to make it a group costume! They went as Seymour and Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors.
For the body of the costume, I used a pair of pajamas that fits as a rough pattern. Everything is made of fleece.
For the hat, I used McCall’s #6812 to start, then added leaves, lips, teeth, gums, and an elastic chin strap to help keep it on his little noggin.
Inner workings of the hat.
The treat bag is made from felt and decorated it with a fabric marker.
E was a great sport walking around to a few neighbors. Mostly he got a kick out of hanging onto fun sized candy bars.
Between the thrift store sweater vest, dollar store glasses, and fleece for the baby’s costume, we only spent around $25.
