I need some tips on how to make a costume for my son for school.

My son needs a farm animal costume for school and I do not want to have to buy two for him. Does anybody know how I can make a farm animal costume that will not be hard or too expensive.

  • I made a cow costume for my son in school. Black sweatsuit, then I cut white misshapen circles out of white felt and put in just a couple stitches to hold them (so I could remove the stitches and let him use the sweatsuit all winter). I made a tail out of black felt and cut several slits in the end.
    You could also check the Chik Fil a site, sometimes they have tips on making a cow costume.

  • The cow idea is a good one. You could use what clothes you have as the start of your idea if really want to keep it cheap. If you have gray go elephant, yellew chicken etc. You can add pieces to a baseball hat for ears etc. Old clothes in the right colors make a great source for free fabric!
