Our daughter was obsessed with birthday parties. She would go around the house singing the Happy Birthday song at the top of her lungs. So when Halloween came around, I decided to make her into a birthday cake.
For the birthday cake costume, I went to the craft store and bought 2 of their largest embroidery looms, cream colored fleece, remnants of pink and yellow fleece, glow in the dark fabric paint and some other fabric paints and trim for decoration.
I cut out a circle from the cream-colored fleece with a generous seam allowance. Then I cut a strip of fleece wide enough to reach from my daughter’s shoulders to her knees with a large seam allowance and long enough to go completely around the circle. I sewed the circle to the length of the other piece. Then I attached the top and bottom to the embroidery looms. I cut out arm holes and made an X in the top for her head. Then all that was left was to decorate!
I made a hat with the pink fleece by tracing a winter hat of hers to use as a pattern. I painted the yellow with the glow in the dark paint and then cut it into small strips. I gathered and tied them together to make a little puff ball. I attached that to the top of the hat. So when she put on the hat, her head was a candle on her birthday cake.
