Carrot Costume

Here is a little blast from the past!
This is the first Halloween costume I have ever made.  I made it last year for Peanut Butter.  

He loved to eat carrots, I had to mix them with anything green to get him to eat green things. 
He ate so many carrots I thought he might turn orange! That would have been awesome :)

To make this I laid him on the felt and traced around him.  The hat I made a month before halloween and by the time he had to wear it, it was a little snug.  Babies grow so fast!  

The costume tied in the back and I knit him a hat and wove pipe cleaners in that held the felt green frond thingies. 

I sewed lines across the felt and stuffed it to help give the costume shape.  
I also made my first pair of orange pants ever. 
Luckily you can't see them, they didn't turn out that well.  

Hubby and I wore bunny ears when we took Peanut Butter to 3 houses to Trick-or-Treat. Somehow I don't have a pic of hubby with bunny ears on, I think he did that on purpose :)
