This year my little man wanted to be a Ice Cream Truck for Halloween. Since I make his costumes every year I had to come up with something for him. I made his costume out of felt with two layers of heavy interfacing. One layer of sew in and the other of double sided fusible covered in felt on both sides. I added Speakers and a MP3 player so it would play the music from an ice cream truck. He was very proud of his costume and has worn it every day since I finished. I did all the sewing and embroidery myself with PE Design and my Brother PE-770 embroidery machine. I managed to finish everything 5 minutes before he went trick or treating. I started with a drawing full size on a piece of paper and went from there to create this.










The hat was not my best work. I made all of it in 20 minutes so he could wear it trick or treating. The Ice cream scoop was left over from his Dunkin Donuts Munchkin Costume from last year ([url]http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=393890.0/url]). I adapted with the felt to make it look like it was melting.


YES! It has to play the music!!!! See it here!


There's more pics of the costume in my gallery also. Smiley Thanks for looking!!!!
