I got the inexplicable urge to sew a Halloween costume for my son back in 2006. I found a pattern that I loved and decided to roll with it. It was a McCalls pattern #8938. It looks like this...
|I picked the lion in the middle and was so excited to get started I bought all the stuff right there.|
|The head piece took me a few weeks to complete. I decided to glue the ribbons on instead of sewing them on because it was difficult to get the whole hat into my sewing machine without catching another part of it. I love my little guy's chubby face!|
|Here's the finished product without the cute kid inside. It was so warm which is perfect for Iowa in the fall.|
|In the end it was totally worth all the work. My little guy was 15 months old and he just loved it. He even learned to roar for Halloween.|
