Mums of newborns don't have much time to spend on sewing but this really simple costume means you can complete it between feeds. I managed to finish mine in an afternoon!
Step 1: The Hat
I used a hat that I knew fitted my child to help measure the size that I needed for the snail hat
Step 2: The Body
Remember to make the snail body longer than your child as it tapers in at the end
Step 3: The Shell
Sew the bottom of the shell to the top of the snail body piece. It doesn't need to be neat as no one sees this bit
