Menacing Monster

Step 1: The base of the costume is a long-sleeved shirt, spotted leggings and boots.

Step 2: For the body, cut a length of fake fur fabric that is about twice as long as you want it to be on your child. Fold it in half lengthwise, sew up each side almost to the top (leave room for armholes), cut a hole in the top fold for your child’s head and cut the bottom edge so that it is zigzagged. It should fit like a baggy sleeveless tunic.

Step 3: For paws, cut out two pairs of fur pieces shaped like mittens (trace your own hands, leaving an inch or two of extra space) and sew them together. Then cut a slit and thumb hole in the bottom of each for your child’s fingers.

Step 4: Cut out two rectangles of fur fabric, each long and tall enough to wrap around a boot. Secure them in place with glue and allow to dry.

Step 5: Make the cap using a simple pattern available at a craft store or buy a knit hat and glue on horns, eyes, etc. made of felt.
