DIY: Super Cute Baby M&M Costume

I went a little over board this Halloween :) I made her about 3 Halloween costumes and bought 1. I started out with one but I just couldn't help myself.  I know this is her first Halloween and can't even go trick or treating yet, but she is just to darn adorable.  Doesn't she look just like a little peanut M&M?

Supplies:
1 white onsie
2.  white felt
3.  pack of red fabric dye- the cheap stuff is fine!
4.  fabric glue
5.  black pants
6.  1 bag of candy corn

Steps:
1.  Dye the fabric- I just followed the instructions on the package- sort of! It's hot water and add the fabric dye.  I only used about a quarter of a package and mixed with hot water.  Soaked the onsie rung it out and then put the onsie in the dryer.
2.  Cut out M from white felt
3.  Glue M on front of the onsie.
4.  Reward yourself with a handful of candy corn

This was such an easy project and am tempted to make one for myself.
