View Full Version : how to make a turtle shell?

my 5yr old wants to be bowser for halloween (a dragonlike creature with a turtle shell with spikes). I'm using a dinosaur pattern for the body and hood, but am unsure about the shell. I want to make it like a backpack so that if it's too hot for the whole costume at school he can just take the shell and hood. Oh, and I've bought green fleece to make it from and plan to stuff it with something soft so that it's not a danger to his classmates :laughing: any suggestions on a pattern for the shell?

I wish I had a suggestion for you. Sorry. But I can't wait to see it when it is done! We love Mario!
