Little Red and The Big Bad Wolf


I love, love, LOVE Halloween!  I love the corn mazes, the costumes, the pumpkins,... everything!  When we were little, my mom used to make our costumes.   Since I've been working with the sewing machine a lot for my quiet book (posts coming soon!), I felt confident enough to attempt Lucy's costume on my own.  I found the tutorial for Lucy's red riding hood cape at The Modest Homestead HERE.  The only thing I did differently was I made the front part of the hood an inch longer so I could fold it back and sew it over the flower fabric for a cleaner looking edge. I'm so happy with how it turned out!






The wolf ears were really simple to make.  I did a little bit of sewing, but honestly, you could do it all with a glue gun. 

All you'll need is:

black felt
gray felt
white felt
headband
pipe cleaners
and a glue gun

You can find and print the pattern I drew HERE.

You will need two ears in gray felt, two inner ears in white, and two inner ears in black.  When I cut the ears out in gray felt, I added a few more fringes to my ear to make it look furry by making little triangles with my scissors.  Arrange the white and black inner ear how you like it and glue (or sew) them on the front part of your ear.  Do the same to the other ear.




Grab your pipe cleaners and make a circle with one of the ends and twist the wire around so it stays in place.

  


Now fold down the rest of the pipe cleaner so it looks like a Christmas tree.


Wrap the "trunk" of the tree around your headband and twist it tight so that it stays in place.

  


When you're done it should look like this.

 
Now take your felt ear and place it behind your pipe cleaner and hot glue it in place. 


Fold the felt ear up so that it sandwiches the pipe cleaner and glue it to the pipe cleaner.  Use your hot glue gun to secure the front of the ear to the back of the ear so that it won't flop open.  I used my fabric pen to lightly outline the edge of the ear to make it pop.  and YOU'RE DONE!    So easy, it's SPOOKY :)
