During our travels, Hugo fell head over heals in love with squirrels. So when his cub-scout group announced they were having a 'come as your favourite animal night', his choice was swift. These nights though are a bit of a trick. Lots of work for something that is worn for maybe an hour or two if you're lucky.
Instead of making a whole suit, we bought a grey hoodie jumper, some fluffy fabric and stuffing.
We cut out a rough squirrel tail shape (very rough), sewed it up on the sewing machine and hand stitched it onto the jumper. Too easy.
And then of course a little crochet acorn to finish off the costume.
Don't you love it when a squirrel hangs out with people gathered around a computer.
Lots of love,
