This homemade costume for babies entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Lisa, the 'Bilbo Baggins' costume creator:

My 6mo son Lucas had shaggy hair so we knew we had to pick a costume that fit - Bilbo Baggins!

For the blazer:
The plan was to create a pattern using an old blazer, but it was impossible to find a cheap used one anywhere so I opted for purchasing a pattern online for 10 bucks. Good news is I can re-use the pattern for future projects! For Bilbo's iconic coat I used a beautiful burgundy velvet from JoAnn. This was the hardest part of the costume and it turned out to be a very messy fabric to work with. I used Celtic buttons found in a sale bin to finish it up.

For the vest:
I used a very cheap green felted fabric that I cut into a very basic vest shape (front only) and sewed it directly onto a white onesie.

For the pants and feet:
Surprisingly I couldn't find brown corduroy so I used an extra pair of brown cotton pants and cut them to length. I then sewed patches of faux fur onto beige socks for the feet.

Would you be interested in making one of these for my son for this halloween? He will be wearing 12-18 months at that time.
I am having the hardest time finding costumes and I'm not very crafty. I of course would compensate you
