This is a costume I made for “Literary Character” day for school. But this very recognizable character is easy to make and warm enough for trick – or – treating . I made it in 3 pieces: a bib style front/back piece and two side panels cut from light beige felt. I hand stitched the side panels without hiding the seam so it had sharp edges and with a fabric marker lightly drew on the creases of a paper bag. With pinking shears I zigzagged the bottom and cut out that little notch at the top of a paper bag. The crown I cut out of actual brown paper bag and glued it on to a tiara and topped it of with a little black soot makeup.
