Baby Chewbacca Costume

First...I just want to say thanks to all of you who left me comments and sent emails in response to our recent bleh week. It meant a lot to me that I could take some time, disappear and take care of my little family and that you guys would all be here when I got back.

So thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hopefully now that we are all on the mend I can buckle down and finish all our Halloween and birthday funtastic tasks.

I wanted to share with you our first family costume. The theme this year is Star Wars.

The teeniest tiniest costume in our family is this to die for...I mean TO.DIE.FOR. Baby Chewbacca.

Are you kidding me with how cute he is??

Happiest Wookie ever.

I knew this costume was going to take the most time, so I started my Halloween sewing parade with Baby Chewbacca. I made the costume out of fleece. I toyed with just leaving the fleece as is but I really wanted some kind of fur texture. So I cut strips of "fur" out of the fleece and sewed it on in rows. Instant fur.

Instant Wookie.

Instant cute.

Chewie wouldn't be Chewie without his bullet pack sash thingy mabob and the tiny pouch...yup those are the technical  names. I made the teeny tiny accessories out of felt.

One Baby Chewbacca costume done. Woohoo.

Now all I need to do is add our Yoda, Darth Vader, and Luke Skywalker and our Halloween will be complete.

I think I can, I think I can. Hahaha. Stay tuned!

That is our theme too!! But of course, I bought all mine...no sewing here. I know I am busy with 4 so I don't know how you do it. We will have Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Yoda. Plus I have a great SIL who loves halloween too and is dressing up with the kids. She is going as Han Solo, and she even convinced her brother to dress up as Chewbacca. We are all excited here too!! Can't wait to see the rest! Glad you are feeling better.

Thanks Gibsons!!

Barb- Your kids are going to be adorable. I dressed up as Leia for an adult party we had. I didn't get a photo. Shoot. It was pretty awesome. Nasty Walmart wig included! Hahaha.

Curious if you have a breakdown of how you did this? I am attempting one for my toddler this year, and would love guidance rather than spending my time trouble shooting :)
