Charlotte's Web Halloween Costumes

This year for Halloween I have another little girl to dress up!  I've always wanted to coordinate their costumes, so this is what we came up with:  Charlotte, the spider; Wilbur the pig!  Here is what I did for each of their outfits.  I wasn't able to do tutorials for each of them, but a lot of what they are wearing speak for themselves!         

This little piggy wouldn't cooperate for pictures.  She also didn't want to wear her pig nose, which basically makes the costume!  So...I made my spider model the nose!  
THE PIG NOSE:   


Made from cutting the top part off of a toilet paper roll, covering it in pink felt, and tying a stretchy band to each side.
 
THE PIG EARS:
Made from cutting large triangles from pink felt and folding the bottom, then gluing them on clips {or headband}.  My little pig refuses to wear headbands!
THE 'PIGGY TAIL'

 Made from cutting a spiral shape into a felt sheet.  I just safety pinned it to the petti romper

SHOES:  ballet slippers
