Ashley from Make It and Love It created this lumberjack costume for her son. The jeans, shirt, and hat were easy enough to find. She made the suspenders, axe, and fleece beard, and she shares a tutorial showing how she did it. I’m loving that fleece beard!! It attaches with elastic loops to a child’s ears, making it easy to put on or take off. But seriously, who would want to take it off? She includes a pattern to make the beard piece to fit a 5 year old child. It should be easy enough to adjust the size up or down as needed. Go to her blog for the how-to.
