Spaghetti and Chef Halloween Costume
It's October, which for anyone with a kid can only mean one thing- it's time for Halloween! I just taped a segment for the Marie show that will air closer to Halloween, but for those of you kind folks who check out my blog on a regular basis, here's a head start on all the costuming action. This spaghetti costume is not only totally adorable but really comfortable for the baby: they can wear their favorite one-piece underneath and be bundled in loops of spaghetti-like yarn- warm on a cold October night and totally practical and yummy enough to eat!

|The chef and spaghetti on with Marie!|
|Draw a circle around a tub, two layers of felt or velvet, this will be the sauce collar.|
|Make it wavy like sauce|
|Sew together and stuff with Hollowfill. Sew a ribbon with 4-5 inches excess on either side of the back opening.|
|Take a break to overturn furniture and play spin-round.|
|Cut a rectangular yellow fabric and sew into rectangles. I had this yellow polyester laying around.|
|Make yarn loops.|
|Sew them to the yellow fabric. Make 3 or 4 of these at different lengths to put around the neck and waist of the baby.|
Make meatballs with Styrofoam balls covered in Model Magic, paint brown and use double sided adhesive to stick it to the noodles.
|This costume is ideal for a baby who isn't moving too much yet. James is a little big for it although still cute!|
