My son will hate me when he's fourteen and realizes that I dressed him up as a cloud for his 2nd Halloween. Too bad, kiddo. I make the costume, I make the rules.
I followed this tutorial to make a cloud for him to wear on top. The only difference was that I didn't stuff it with poly-fill, as my stash disappeared. Instead, I cut three layers, two of white fabric and one of basic cheap batting. I sewed the perimeter (two pieces of fabric, right sides facing, and the piece of batting on top). I'm sure it's not technically correct to sew right on top of batting but my machine handled it without any issues at all. I turned it right side out and hand stitched it closed, then added the inner line of stitching for the snazzy 3-D effect.
The second best part is that this whole costume was F.R.E.E. Pants he wears (and will be able to again), the white fabric was from a sheet set handed down from my Gramma, batting and raindrop fabric from my stash. And this, Dillon, is why I never throw anything out.
