Bella's Halloween Costume



I didn't know what Bella should be for her "first" Halloween. I know it's not really her first Halloween, but it is the first time she'll be dressing up for it. Last year at this time she was about 8 pounds! I really like to make Halloween costumes- one year I made Spiderman for Jack, and a Power Ranger for Will, and then a few years ago I made a Willy Wonka costume for Will. I am not handy at all with the sewing machine, and there's always a lot of swearing involved at first, but somehow I always get it right. Yesterday I made this pumpkin costume for Bella- it came out so great, and she LOVES it! We'll stuff it with something so it's going to be all puffed out, and she'll wear a black turtleneck and leggings underneath it! But I had to post this picture of it today because she just looked so cute, I couldn't stand it!!

Oh my gawd! That is so cute! You did such a great job on it. Shannon is going to a Halloween party and needs a costume. I have no idea what to do for her. She doesn't like any of my suggestions!

What a cute pumpkin! Did you use a pattern, or make it up? I want to make my daughter a pumpkin for Halloween, but my search for a pattern had left me frustrated. Thanks for you help, and again, good job!
