I really wanted this adorable lion costume for my sons first Halloween. However there was absolutely no way I was paying $100 for it. I looked at the costume for weeks before I decided to just go for it and make my own homemade lion costume.

I bought fleece and fake fur fabrics from the store and then I went to work. I sewed for 3 weeks during nap time and every other spare moment I could find with an 8 month old getting into everything. This is what I finally came up with. He was adorable!
