Hi! I am a new sewer and have vowed to make my kids costumes this year. Now when I say new, I mean I haven't ever used a machine Smiley. BUT, I am detirmined! This year, I think we are going to go with a Peter Pan theme and I've found an adorable tutorial for the 3 year old's Peter Pan costume but my 16 month old is going to be a lost boy and I haven't the slightest idea how to make an animal hooded footed pajama! HELP! Are there any tutorials you know of online or anything else that could help me?! Thank you so so much in advance!!!

Good for you!  I hope you have a blast making your kids' costumes! 

If you can get hold of it, the Australian Women's Weekly book 'Kids' dress-ups & parties' (ISBN: 1 86396 167 4) has a hooded pyjama-type costume with little matching booties.  It's to make a rabbit or fieldmouse costume but if you change the fabric you could make a lost boys costume.  The book has all the patterns and instructions.

Hi Laceyboo!  Sewing costumes for kids is some of the funnest sewing!  I was at Hancock fabrics this morning and all their McCall's patterns are 89 cents!  They have cute animal footed costumes for babies- totally worth a try.  You can do it!

When I read your post I remembered seeing somewhere on the net, a tutorial or something for how to make a Where The Wild Things Are "Max" costume, which would sort of be similar, you could try googling it. Either that or you could make a hood to sew onto an existing pair of footed pj's. Hope that helps... not long before Halloween now!
