I think I have decided on my little one being a bob omb for Halloween. I am unsure how to make the costume. Here's my inspiration pic http://babies.icanhascheezburger.com/2011/01/03/funny-kids-pictures-bob-omb-baby/ Any suggestions?

Wife to 1 (8/26/12)
Mama to 1 boy (3/6/11) and 3 fur children (01/05/10), adopted (3/18/13) and adopted (8/4/13)

Seems to me like you need some pieces roughly shaped like...

though I wouldn't know much more about the dimensions. Open at the bottom & top. And I think it's just stuffed. With batting or something. Maybe add some straps or something to keep it up. Or you could put some boning along the curved seams. Then it'll hold it's shape without needing to be filled and will be flexible so you can pick baby up easily.

As for figuring out the "pattern".... All I can think of are trial and error or getting a ball that is the size you and either sacrificing it to cut it up to get the shape or use junk fabric to pin around the ball. Always working for that shape.

I don't know if that makes any sense or is at all helpful...
