Last year, in honor of my husband's alma mater, Elliot was a University of Colorado (CU) Buffalo. I made his hat out of felt, faux fur and fleece; sewed brown pants with the leftover fleece; and appliqued a yellow tee-shirt with black cotton hand-cut letters and CU logo.
Wasn't he the cutest little buffalo that ever roamed?
This year Elliot is going to be a dinosaur. I promise to post pictures and sewing tips and his costume starts to come together. Want a homemade costume, but don't feel confident in your crafting/sewing skills? Check out the following costume kits and DIY costume instructions.
