What materials did you use? anti pill fleece, bulky yarn, jute and felt for hat

What are you most proud of? using the bulky yarn in place of straw or jute, making sure it didnt itch at the wrists!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? using fleece for the costume makes it nice and warm, even at the end of october, if you're from warmer climes, maybe a lighter fabric works better!

Oh gosh! Do they come any cuter than this?

Well, Ava is just priceless in her scarecrow costume. The costume is really wonderful. No itching, she will be warm & no worries about a mask on her beautiful little face. You really did well on the costume, I like how you made the straw. Perfect. Thank you for sharing. :-)

Well I don't know which is cuter....the model, or the costume! Very nice work...all the little details look great.

thanks, she is adorable, of course i would think so, being her grandma, but the costume did turn out really well and was pretty simple to put together

Very cute! I did this pattern (I think it was the same one) for daughter's 2nd grade school play. She looked cute too......lol. BUT I see you were smarter than I was. I like how you did the fleece and rope for the straw. Has to be more comfortable for the wearer. I followed my pattern and used actual straw............duh!

my grand daugthers are at the age they tend to get the 'itchies' so i knew i had to substitute the straw!it is a very cute pattern and a lot less time than the dorothy costume was!!
