due to the cuteness of your son and his costume i just had to buy this book on ebay! Smiley

Oh wow, that's quite the compliment!  I think you'll like the book especially if you have someone in the under 6-years crowd to share it with.

It's too late for this year, but the Scituate Art Festival is Columbus day weekend every year.  In addition to the art section (with paintings), they have a huge craft festival throughout the center of town.

This is my son's first Halloween and I wanted it to be special.  So, since his favorite book is Don't let the pigeon drive the bus! by Mo Willems, I decided to make him a pigeon costume. 

This was my first sewing project and while the stitches aren't perfectly straight, I think it came out pretty well!

I used the duck pattern from Simplicity #2788 and added felt eyes to the hat to be more pigeon-like.  I had to dye the plush felt myself since I couldn't get it in blue.  Luckily, Paula Burch suggested that I use fabric paint from Dharma Trading since the felt was 100% polyester.  This worked like a charm!

His costume is in 5 pieces: 2 webbed feet, a black bodysuit with blue sleeves, a blue stuffed belly and a hat.

Once I finished his costume, I bought a light green shirt from the good will and added some darker green fabric to the collar and shift cuffs to make my own bus driver costume.  I also reworked a police officer hat from the costume shop to match.
