Action shot:

This is Davy Crockett. I was on a very tight budget this year, so the entire costume cost me $5 to make Smiley  We were in a pinch for time because it was for a book report that coincides with Halloween. He changed the topic the day before it was due, which sent me fabric shopping at the last minute (and up til midnight).  I had to call in the reinforcements (aka my mom) to help with the book report (and the baby) while I went to cutting and sewing.

I found this fantastic material at Walmart for $2 a yard, its terry cloth (they called it robe material) but it looks like suede.  Then the coon-hat was made from 1/4 yard of faux fur I got at Joann's for $1. It was a solid color, so I had my son take a sharpie and color the stripes on it to make it look striped.  I typically don't use patterns, so I kind of winged it and made him stay up late to keep trying it on over and over.  He was a hit at school and with the teacher, and very excited to be Davy Crockett.
