I made the turtle shell out of a straw hat that I cut the brim off of and spray-painted brown before velcro-ing it to the back of the costume so that I could take it on and off to get Sir Sawbug in his car seat.
I also used the velcro to attach the belly piece so I could still get Sawyer in and out of his costume with the snaps.
I purchased his cute little TMNT beanie from Amlowi, a shop on Etsy for only $9.99
And the final result was the cutest Donatello ever.
He was a mighty precious ninja turtle, if I do say so myself.
