We have been asking Nathan the past few months what he would like to be for Halloweeen. At frist he said Mickey Mouse...then he said a racecar...but the last 50 times he has said the same thing: a big blue M&M. So, Grandma is making that costume.
I found this picture online of a bag of Peanut M&M's that a baby could be...but they don't make them anymore, so I decided to make Evan's costume this year myself. Actually, I just decided this on Friday.
Then, I went to JoAnn fabric and got the felt. Total cost = $6 (all 40% off). Plus a bag of Peanut M&M's for inspiration and guidance.
I loved it. I loved making the m&m's! I really do like applique...even when its with something cheap like felt.
