Green Eggs and Ham Costume

My son’s favorite book is Green Eggs and Ham. His name happens to be Sam so he decided he wanted to be Sam-I-am. I thought it would be easy to find the costume on-line to buy. No such luck. I decided to make it.

I sewed the yellow fabric and cut the frills at the bottom. For the tray I bought a silver tray and used green and white modeling clay to make the green eggs and ham. The hat was bought on eBay. It was a limited release years ago from Warner Brothers.

My daughter dressed up as The Cat in the Hat to go along with the theme. We were stopped every two minutes to pose for pictures.

Total Spent: $35

  6. Did you just make the “skirt” and pair it with a long-sleeved yellow shirt? Or is the costume more of a one-pieced “dress”?
