Categories:Halloween Costumes, Animal Costumes

This homemade costume for babies entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 1st place in the Cutest Baby Costume nomination!

A word from Amy, the 'Baby Squirrel' costume creator:

My 15 month old daughter is always picking up acorns. She has a handful, or two, every time she is outside. It was perfectly fitting for her to be a squirrel for Halloween this year. She loves her costume too! I made it with no type of pattern just based on her measurements. She wears a pink bow on one ear and her squeaky shoes with her costume too so she even sounds like a chattering little squirrel. I covered a jack-o-lantern in tan and brown felt to look like an acorn. I also sewed an acorn to attach to her pacifier. She looks like she's carrying an acorn in her mouth. Every one is completely smitten by her walking around with that fluffy tail and adorable little whiskers drawn on her face.

Where did you find the brown faux fur? I looked in Joann's over the weekend and they only had a solid dark brown faux fur. Or do you remember the name of the brand? Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

#35 comment by Shannon July 17, 2017

Since the details to making this costume is being guarded closer than the Colonel's secret recipe.... I did a couple of Google searches. Check out Simplicity pattern 2506, the mouse or panda pattern would probably do the trick. Fabric, I found something similar of etsy at a shop called FurAndFabric in Anaheim. The tail is probably pinned at the top and bottom. Good luck, everyone!

#47 comment by Tiffany October 10, 2017

Would you sell yours if you still have it??

#48 comment by Connie October 10, 2017

I made this for my then 18 month old last year. I used the Simplicity pattern 2506 (for the bear) for it. I handsewed it and it took a few weeks (I work FT). I bought polyfill and brown and white fur at JoAnn's (which cost probably $50 ) Here's a picture of mine: https://instagram.com/p/BMP1boHgsfd/

#49 comment by Amy Elizabeth Spivak October 10, 2017

I'm sure altering a pattern would work. I just don't like patterns �� I made this in 3 1/2 hours. I had to create while itge vision for it was clear.

#50 comment by Jennifer Roberts October 10, 2017

Connie, thank you!

#51 comment by Connie October 11, 2017

No problem! It didn't turn out as luxe as Amy's but I loved it and it was the hit of everywhere we went. I had to just figure out the tail as there is not pattern for it and then used 3 deconstructed and wound together wire hangers to provide it with internal structure and maintain the shape.

#52 comment by Jen October 12, 2017

Great idea!

#53 comment by Liz October 13, 2017

Maam Amy, Please let us know how to make the tail to hold up like that? I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

One thing is for sure....AMY you are very talented. Loved this costume the minute I saw it, and you did a beautiful job. I am going to try and capture what you have done, but I am not so sure about the tail. Hopefully you held it in place with fishing line. This is definitely a GREAT costume. Hope I have fun making it.
