lions, and Steigers and ewoks...oh my!

Pin It I made Steiger his Halloween costume.

The idea came this summer, while we were camping at the coast and S was walking around in a berber-y (not to be confused with Burberry) sweat shirt.

"He looks like an ewok."

And the idea was born.

I got the pattern at JoAnn's for 99 cents... and started sewing my first clothing item in well over 15 years (and those were with the assistance of my faithful 4-H leader).

But it went well.  Apparently I can follow more than just a quilting pattern.

You saw the beginnings here... (when he was dancing around the house with glee).

I contemplated leaving him a bear.

But found a really old and worn out shirt of Jay's to use as Wicket's hood.

Besides, he walked like an ewok anyway.

I decided to make the hood removable... which turned out good and bad.

Good: 

Cute family photo

Happy Halloween!

and cute Steiger photos

Bad:

Mommy was free to show Steiger it really wasn't so bad after all.

see S, it's not so bad

He did wear it for the big night thankfully.

In the end though... it was all about this house:

trick or treat!

and the sucker he found on the other side.

Great job on his costume!! I wanted to make Cullen a spider that I saw a pattern for, but I felt a little intimidated and passed it up. Now I wish I had tried it!

I love this. He is so cute and the photo of you all together is lovely. Having made such a good costume for him this year you'll have really high standards to live up to from now on! JUliex

SO CUTE, but (now this is embarrassing), what is an EWOK? And don't tell my husband I asked you! I have serious gaps in my education because we didn't have TV growing up. Is this a TV or movie character? Are you going to block my comments now because I am clueless?
