Here's the Gruffalo's Child costume I made for my daughter for Hallowe'en.  I'm a bit late posting it but here it is anyway.  She looooooves The Gruffalo's Child and The Gruffalo.

Wow!  She looks so happy, and I can see why. The costume is perfect. It must have taken forever.

Thanks everyone.  That's very kind of you  Smiley.  I can't quite remember now but I think it took me about 2 months on and off.  I followed a pattern I regularly use for a one-piece children's jumper (sweater) and I made up the rest as I went along.

What an adorable little Gruffalo. How clever of you to make a pattern for her suit.  It looks exactly like.

Just saw this animated short movie this weekend.  We love the Gruffaloes in this house.  I can't wait to show this to my daughter when she gets home from school.  Your daughter is adorable, just like the Gruffalo child!

For those of you who don't know the Gruffalo books, you have to check them out they are really clever and cute.  The rest of you know exactly what I'm talking about.  Thanks again for all the lovely compliments Smiley
