St. Louis, Misso...
I made this snail costume for my daughter, Charlotte, for Halloween! The body is a hooded sleeper made of a stretchy lycra type stuff, and the shell is made of a batik print fleece. The antennas are pieces of wire coat hanger that are covered in fleece. The shell is a separate piece with elastic at both ends of the band that goes around her belly, so it is easily (as easy as it can be with a wiggly baby) removable.
stretchy lycra, fleece, small pieces of wire coat hanger, 18" zipper, elastic
