In other recent crafty pursuits, I made the munchkin a Halloween costume! He was a frog prince, and stole the show everywhere we went. My mom taught me how to read a pattern and guided me through the whole process. That, and a little hot glue, and the results were a really fun and memorable Halloween. It is tradition for both the husband and I to have handmade costumes, so I’m glad to carry that on. We’re going to save some scraps from each costume I make for him to make into a quilt or something someday.
This is him at his school’s fall festival. He wore his costume there last week and then again on Halloween to my work’s trick or treat function! I work at a college and the women’s residence hall had trick or treat from room to room. We didn’t ask for candy, just went to show him off!
His feet were one of my favorite parts, even though the sewing on them could have been better. The pattern didn’t call for them to be stuffed, but I wanted them to stand out.
By the end of Halloween, he was one tuckered out little frog.
my god, he is just so sweet in that costume! i love it! i wish i had had more time and energy to make a costume for the peanut. turned out that $15 at oldnavy.com can buy something really quite cute.
FANTASTIC! What a sweet, sweet prince!
So adorable! You did a great job. And I can’t get over how much he looks like you in these pictures…
that is one of the cutest baby costumes EVER! It’s sooo adorable (as is the little prince himself 🙂 )
So. CUTE! And how much fun to get to show him off. I’m sure he was a sleepy froggy prince by the end of the night – and I’m sure you were too! You did a great job on the costume and the FEET are the best!
Ribbit. He’s precious and what a fantastic job you did making that costume! Hope that you are all doing well!
One of the cutest things I have ever seen! Awesome. Good work on that amazing costume.

OMGOSH this is the cutest thing I have seen in a long time and the feet, the feet are awesome!!!!

OMG he’s so cute! I can’t believe you made that!
