Throwback Thursday: Bag of Peanuts Halloween Costume

Just 100 sewing days left until Halloween! Are you making your kids' (or your own) costumes this year? What do you have planned?

I like the kiddos to coordinate for Halloween. Ya know, at least for now when I have a bit of influence. For Halloween 2012 The Boy decided he'd wear his airplane costume again. So that left me thinking about what The Girl could be. On Halloween she was going to be 5 months old. I decided the perfect pairing to the airplane would be a bag of airline peanuts. I found this image online of a bag of Southwest Dry Roasted Peanuts and went to work.

I bought a blue pillowcase, thinking I would cut neck and arm holes and slip it over her. Then I decided since I normally wore her in the baby carrier that I could just wear her and pin it on around her. I used some fabric paint and spent a few nights painting the pillowcase in the likeness of the example. (I left off the "byte-sized fares" part simply due to time.) Here's the final result.
