Halloween Costume!

What do you get when you start with a few hundred cotton balls, 25 hot glue sticks, a onsie and some scrap t-shirt fabric??  An adorable lamb costume, of course!

I started a tradition last year of making a costume for my youngest niece as a bit of an experiment.  I usually stick to quilting and making things for the home (pillows, mug rugs, etc.), so this has been a fun change of pace for me with adorable results! 

This is where it all began...hundreds of cotton balls and a large pack of hot glue sticks!

I made the hat from scratch using scraps from an old white t-shirt using a tutorial from Sew Liberated (here).  It was much easier to make than I expected.  I used Bella cotton solids for the edging rather than a knit fabric to avoid a special trip to the fabric store.


I cannot wait to see the little lamb is action!  :)
