Oh, my...
Beware: Tiger!
Have you ever seen such cuteness ferocity???

For cookies!!! (Tigers love cookies, you know.)

The costume is from Kwik Sew 3099. I made a size small (12 months), and it fits pretty well on Little Bear (he's 21 pounds and about 31 inches tall... I probably could have shortened it a little, but it is fine when he is wearing shoes). The body is fleece and then I used "bunny fur" for the belly and ear contrasts. The paws are just white fleece with some black faux suede that I found in my stash. This is actually the second time I've used this pattern, so it went pretty smoothly (other than sewing the hood on inside-out... thank goodness for seam rippers!).

I'm so thrilled with how it turned out. Super cute, nice and toasty warm (perfect for chilly night of trick-or-treatin'), and he actually seems to enjoy wearing it. Yay!


  1. I LOVE THAT!! you know there is just something about making a halloween costume that is SOOOOO much better than getting a store bought mass produced... shhhh don't tell my MIL that she insists on taking my kids each year and getting their costumes!!

  2. That is so cute! What about BB?

  3. He is supercutefearless... I love the costume! Especially the second photo is great!
