Armadillo Costume

This year I couldn't decide what I wanted my middle son to be until I read him a little book about armadillos. The book showed pictures of little armadillo babies and when I saw them, I knew that he HAD to be an armadillo! With some leather-looking fabric (it wasn't thick like pleather but was some scaley printed brown fabric in some tribal collection at Joann's), anti-pill fleece and some stuffing, I was able to pull it off! In the end the fabric was a little too dark for what I was picturing, so after I sewed it all up, I washed it with some toffee colored craft paint and then added the eyes. I wish that I had more time to make the back just as I had pictured it in my head, but life happens. All in all, I am happy with out it turned out!

Oh my goodness! My don just told me he wants to be a baby armadillo and I have no idea where to start! I am pretty horrible when it comes to sewing so I am sure mine will not turn out as adorable as yours!

Do you have a how to guide? How was this made? Do you sell them? My son just informed me he wants to be an armadillo for Halloween?
