The Halloween Costume

Little Man O is a Tomte for Halloween.

In total the costume cost me Two dollars to make. I used left over blue material for the jacket. The pants are from an old linen shower curtain that I decided had lived a good life, and needed a new use. We had the little vest already.
I went out and bought red felt for his hat, and hand stitched it into the cone shape. I also bought the brown craft foam that I used to create the look of a pair of wooden shoes. Those were the trickiest part. I made a template out of paper that fit over his tennis shoes. Then used elastic to keep them on his shoes, after they were formed.
