Court, Savannah, and I are going to be pirates for Halloween, and Xander is going to be our little parrot! I completely just "winged" this costume! I found these way cut leggings at Cherry Lane in Provo. One of the good things about Xander having such short legs, He fits into baby leggings and 6 to 9 month pants!
1 yard Red Felt
3 sheets red felt
3 sheets yellow felt
Needle and thread
Elastic for the bottom
I drew out a pattern. As you can see it took me a while to get the right shape. You want it to be big, after you sew it, it will be smaller.
Cut and pin. Sew, leaving a large hole for legs, two arm holes, and a neck whole large enough for your child's head to fit through.
Try it on to make sure it fits your child.
Cut out feathers and hand stitch them on.
