Carter's Costume: Part 1

So, I made Carter's costume... And I made step by step instructions if you want to make one too, I just haven't had good enough weather to photograph him in it!  So.. hopefully today? Tommorow?  But here is part one.. What do you think he is?

White Felt and Yellow Fleece

Peel your banana.

Place your peels on paper.

Trace your peels

Number you peels, so you know which ones belong next to one another.

Sew your peels in order, Sew 1 to 2, 2 to 3, 3 to 4, and 4 to 1. But leave a gap so you can stuff.

I didn't care that my seam showed from the outside, because the yellow peel will hide it.

Repeat the process with the yellow. Only sewing up halfway. 

Place banana in peel!  How cute?

What do you think he is?


  1. This is a great banana. I have always wanted to make a set of fabric food, but I never seem to find the time.

    Is he a monkey?

  2. I would have never thought to do this! Love it. My little girl loves monkeys and would love this just to have to play with. Thanks for the idea!

  3. This is so pretty! I love felt food. :)


I love hearing from you! If asking a question, make sure to leave a way to get in contact with you!
