so my nephew is 15 months old and his mom wanted him to be a skeleton but not one of those cheesy ones you can get at the store, so being the crafty auntie i am, i made him one.  and just in the nick of time!  i used simplicity pattern 3594, the lion, just changing it by not adding the mane or tail, and omitting the ears.  i like it and i hope she does too. here are some pix
hood lining

the paint is still drying, i did it all free hand.  and the zipper looks wonkey on the back but its not.  i'm not sure if they are gonna use the hood or not so i didn't paint it, its been so hot in so. cal. that i think it would be a bit too much.  its all made out of flannel so he will be warm.  comments and criticism is always welcome (be honest with me!)

edit: added pix of him in it!

This is super cute! Love it -- it's much better than those cheesy nylon and plastic costumes.
