Halloween Costume

For Halloween for Rhett, I didn't want to spend any money, so I thought I'd make him a Gus Gus costume out of scraps I had. Here is a picture of Gus Gus from Cinderella:

I couldn't find any two-way stretch fabric for a little yellow crop top so I had a yellow polo that I never wear so I decided to chop that up for the costume shirt.

The hat was easy, I had one seam going down the center and I attached an elastic under his chin to have something the ears could be sewn to. The ear I sewed onto scraps of batting and then put the tan fabric around it. I thought I would have to line the edges with wire, but the batting made them stiff enough I just had the fabric and called it good.

I also made little brown shoes/ socks with the big toe that I stuffed with a cotton ball.

All this plus a chubby baby made an inexpensive, simple costume. We think he's pretty cute but we are bias.
