I wanted us to be a couple, so made myself a Toadette costume. At first people were unsure who we were as most of them went for the safe option and brought a Disney princess costume, but we got a lot of laugh and compliments. Once the initial shock was over, everyone wanted to try it out. After a lot of internet searching on DIY and speaking to the lovely ladies at Textile Trader, I decided to use fleece as its easier no over-locking than other material and sturdier than felt. I Bought myself a huge bag of stuffing, 3m of ribbon, double sided tape and some strings.
