Back at square one I knew I needed a costume that was safe, soft, warm and easy to take off. Grabbed some felt, fabric glue and scissors and whipped this up. Here is a slide show of how I did it:

Last night I took a needle and thread to the sides for extra strength.  Something about sewing up a tiny Halloween costume felt like official Mom business.   And I totally loved it.
