SAM I AM costume-Halloween part I...

dr seuss green eggs and ham hot dog costume kids sam i am costume making halloween costume Misc. Creations! sam i am sam i am costume sewing sewing halloween costume

Together Arlin and I decided he'd be Sam I AM for Halloween because of the book...his new favorite nightly read before bedtime.

However, Mama learned a big lesson this year. I'll have to wait a little bit longer (like last minute) to buy fabric and such for next years costume ...Cause it's true, 3 year olds can sometimes change their minds about what they want to be!

See...Jacker's was REALLY "Buzz Lightyear". Yep, Buzz Lightyear dressed up as Sam I AM. Hey, whatever works right? I admit I was a little deflated Jacks wasn't as excited as I thought he'd be getting dressed up for Halloween. I realize this is probably just the beginning of his little independent voice (and really, would I want it any other way?...nah.)

Costume in the making:

Because toddler bright orange (lens-less) safety goggles were SO necessary  for this Halloween sewing project...

Don't ask...What can I say, my Mom and I are just silly sometimes!

Arlin's Mimi (my mom)

I gotta tell you, my Mom's a total trooper when it comes to helping me with some of my off the wall ideas. "Maintenance" sweeps with a broom and dust pan were also a MUST throughout this costume making. Yellow faux fur was everywhere by the time we wrapped up. I'm still finding bits of it throughout the house, and in my car!

Sam I am: green eggs and ham

For the plate : I took a piece of cardboard and cut it into a circle (using a smaller sized music record for a size guide) then covered the top with a  white cotton fabric scrap (using Modge Podge for an adhesive) The ham and eggs are made out of green and white eco-felt and stuffed with batting for 3 dimensional fullness. At first I attached the eggs to the plate with velcro tabs, but reevaluated that method quickly....with a three yr. tot- E6000 glue might be better. (this glue can glue anything to anything!)

And meet...SAM I AM...(I mean Buzz Lightyear as Sam I am)

Sam I am

this costume was pretty easy compared to last years...
