Squirrel Boy.

 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,
Kate xxooxx.


  1. I'm with Hugo there...squirrels are so cuuuuute! And he is the cutest of them all! Great costuming! Love Mum

  2. Too cute, such a huge squirrel ;-))))
    You did a great job in finding a "quick" solution for that costume party !! And the little detail of that crocheted acorn, just fantastic :-) !

  3. So fantastic Kate!!! What a clever Mum you are and what a great idea to go as a squirrel! xx

  4. I love this! What a fun costume - and comfortable looking, too. I'll definitely keep this in mind as an option for my girls come Halloween. And the acorn pendant was a clever touch!

  5. I'm a huge squirrel fan and I love, love , love this, very super cool. :D

  6. You would enjoy the Scaredy Squirrel book series I think. All of the children I've used them with loved him.

  7. What a loveable squirrel - even more cute than usual!
