Quick, Easy, and Cheap Halloween Costume

If you have been following my blog for a while, you have seen these pictures before.  I thought I would share with you a quick, easy, and cheap way to make a fun Halloween costume for the kiddos this year.  When I made these costumes I was really concerned to have costumes that were warm and could have a coat worn underneath.  Sometimes the saddest part of Halloween is when they have to wear a coat over top a costume.

I had fun making these costume.  I loved how quick and easy they were for me to make.  Any animal can be made with these.
 It is a really simple costume to make and can be done in a day of it doesn't have a ton of detail.  I wish I had thought to put it in a tutorial for you with pictures, so sorry.  If I get the chance to make another one, I will share my secrets with you!
All it is is a yard of felt fabric with elastic around the top for the neck, arm holes on each side, and some of them have elastic at the bottom to make it more round.  When I added the eyes I drew them out on paper first to make sure I liked them.  When I sewed the eyes, and noses on I added stuffing inside to give it a fun bubble look.
 I was supper happy with these, and how they turned out.  Anything to make a child happy on such a fun day!

These are DARLING! Even though they are meticulously made, you can tell that they have an easy construction that most people can handle. I love the cow and pig! Cute kids, too!
