Update: Voting is now open at Create Craft Love!! So do me a favor, head on over HERE & vote for this adorable Baby Bag of Popcorn! Lucky #47! I'd love you for ever!
I'm not much of a seamstress (yet). Which is why I love felt so, so much. You can cut it and it won't fray, you can hot glue it, and it'll stay for (almost) ever!
I threw together this halloween costume for my little man in about 15 minutes. The most annoying part of the whole process was waiting for my hot glue gun to get hot enough! The entire thing is made from felt except for two pieces of ribbon that I looped through slits I cut in the felt which I used to tie onto the baby carrier.
I bought the felt by the yard at Jo-Ann's and was able to use a single sheet of white to wrap around the front of me & the baby carrier. I then cut (imperfect) straight strips in red. This is a 15 minute project, no yard sticks required for straight lines! Nobody will notice, anyway! I finished it all off with a little label that just says "Popcorn". Just incase anybody gets confused ;)
I used this costume last year and it's going to be hard to resist shoving my little man back into that carrier for this Begger's Night... Oh wait, his 30 pounds of heft should deter me from that, thankfully!
Have you started on Halloween costumes for your munchkins yet this year? I am tossing around so many different ideas for my two gremlins. I just need to decide soon and get a move on!
P.S. I entered this costume in a contest over at Crazy Little Projects! You should go check out all of the other wonderful ideas if you're looking for more inspiration.
