Scorpion Costume

A little while back I got an odd request from my sister Tiffany. She wanted to know if I could make a scorpion costume for my nephew Carter. He is the mascot for my other nephew, Gavin's football team. After throwing around some ideas with Tiff we came up with the plan. I made a pattern and completed and shipped the project within a few day.

What do you think? Does he look like a scorpion? I used black jersey knit fabric. I stuffed the legs, claws and stinger with poly-fill batting. Carter will also be sporting this adorable getup for Halloween. I also made a peacock costume for his sister Renee but you will have to come back and see that later.

If you would like a copy of the pattern send me an email ( There is a $5.00 fee to cover the supplies and shipping costs.
