Elmo

Last update: March 23, 2010

I didn't take in progress photos for this costume, so I can't show
a tutorial of how I did it. But I basically laid him down on the fabric and drew around
him for the basic size and then drew how big I thought the Elmo parts
needed to be. I did some figuring for shapes on the pattern and just hoped it
would work out. I lucked out because it doesn't look too bad...

Though it is a bit creepy having his face come out the mouth! haha!

I stuffed the parts around my son with fabric and the lining was all a snug
fit against him so it was very comfortable, if a bit hot.
