Baby Lion Costume

You won't be able to resist cuddling up with your baby in this get-up


  • Two old-fashioned mop heads
  • Needle and thread
  • Scissors and glue
  • Tan and pink felt
  • Black marker
  • Two 6-inch pieces of elastic
  • Tan hooded jacket, tan pants


Sew mop ends together to form one long mop piece, then sew to hood of jacket, about one inch from the front (trim yarn if necessary). Cut half-circles from tan felt and smaller half circles from pink felt, glue together to make ears, then glue ears to hood. Cut two tan felt paws and draw on claws with marker. Sew elastic to paws, and slip over his ankles. What a grrrreat costume!
