Animal Costume for Toddler - BERNINA Halloween 2011

My first Halloween costume for my 19 month old son. I designed the pattern for a fleece sleeper (which I will use as pajamas after Halloween). I attached an over-sized hood made out of red faux fur, bound the edges with more orange fleece (Animal’s lips); carefully positioned the eyes, nose, feathers, and started gluing. Once I had the head finished, I sewed a simple pair of straight-leg pants out of brown jersey and cut the legs in a zig-zag pattern. The vest is red fleece with wavy triangles sewn along the neckline. I apologize for the quality of the pictures, I’ll have better ones up shortly… maybe even with patterns for the pieces.
