My four year-old son had a few ideas for his Halloween costume this year, but he finally settled on dressing as a piece of pizza.  A piece of pizza is a great costume: it's funny, instantly recognizable, you can customize it, and of course, it's easy! It's also comfortable and easy to move around in, and you can remove it in a jiffy if necessary (perfect for a school or work costume!)

I made this costume out of felt yardage (the kind you get on the bolt at the fabric store, as opposed to the small sheets of craft felt). I love making costumes out of felt! It's inexpensive, easy to work with, and you don't have to finish it by hemming. Perfect for a one-time-use costume.

Project Materials:

    * 1 yard each of cream-colored and tan felt (72" wide), $3.59 per yard
    * 1/4 yard of dark red felt, $.90
    * 1 sheet each of black, brown, green craft felt, on hand or $.25 each
    * A piece of batting, 24x24", on hand or $4.95 (I bought a bag of crib-sized batting at Wal-mart)
    * Sewing machine & thread
    * Hot glue gun & glue
    * Velcro, on hand

Total: I spent $13.98, but you could make it for about $8 (if you have batting on hand, or if you skip the batting)

Tutorial for making it is on my blog, Dollar store Crafts

So cute!  And he looks thrilled with it too!
I love seeing people still making their costumes for kids---It makes me sad when you see a group in cheap, store bought, unrecognizable costumes.  People don't realize that they could probably make something more creative, for less money, if they just used their brain and some creativity!
/end rant!

Good luck in the challenge!
