On the other hand, my child got the most simplistic costume possible. Baby boy wanted to be Cookie Monster. Love the simple request too by the way! I found a pattern for a simple hoodie along with some other winter attire (McCall’s M4644). I estimate from opening up the pattern to sewing on my little googly eye attachment was about 4 hours. I used No-pill fleece with the fuzzy side out for Cookie Monster’s fur. I used a scrap basted on so I could remove the googly eyes without an glue residue on the hood. Here’s a couple pictures of the finished hoodie.
