Potato Head Costumes

Do you have any fun Halloween costumes that you made this year? I had a special request for a Mrs. Potato head costume this year from my husband's cousin. Their children have Buzz Lightyear and Jessie costumes, and they wanted to dress up with their kiddos. I had my husband's Mr. Potato Head costume from last year, so they just needed the Mrs. Potato Head to go with it, to complete the Toy Story costume theme.
 
I went to the fabric store two days ago to buy some more brown, pink, white, red, and black felt. I was glad to find I was not the only one shopping for fabric for last minute costumes! The store was packed with moms. God bless all those last minute sewers.
 
Presenting...Mrs. Potato Head
 
 
This is an easy costume that anybody that can sew a straight line can complete. I chose just to glue the eyes, nose, and mouth on. (So much faster!) Oh and of course I had to make her a little purse for Mrs. Potato Head.
 
Here is Mr. Potato Head and I from last year...
 
 
I used small velcro pieces to attach the body parts so they were interchangeable like the "real" Mr. Potato Head. I was motivated and made a child version of Mr. Potato head last year too.
