Pumpkin Halloween Costume!

25 Oct

We don’t normally celebrate Halloween in the Southern Hemisphere, but it’s becoming more and more popular nowadays. This year, our friends will be holding a Halloween party and so I decided to make my daughter a pumpkin costume! The hat was based on these two patterns here and here, and modified to make it a bit bigger for my almost-3 year old.

The pumpkin top was based on a google image search for “kids pumpkin costume”. Then I just free-styled it from there with some orange polar fleece material, black cotton lining for the face, and a white jersey cotton lining in the inside. I’ve stuffed it with some old wadding I had, and elasticated the hem.

I’m pretty happy with the final result, and my daughter was very excited to try it on!  Looking forward to heading to the party next week!
