As luck would have it, my fabric stash included everything I would need to make the costume: orange fleece (puchased for a different Halloween project that never got made), green stretch knit, and scraps of yellow and brown felt. I even had a brown paper bag from which to cut a LittleFee sized bag to carry her treats. It's not part of the pattern, but it was easy enough to draft one.

The pattern calls for either fleece or felt for the pumpkin suit. In retrospect, I'm wondering if felt might have produced a pumpkin with less bulk. My Little Lishe is so roly-poly in the suit that she can barely stand.

I had been hoping the costume would fit BID Erzulie. Although the suit fits, the top and tights are too small. I would have made her a larger set, but then my Lagoon arrived and I dropped everything to do her face-up and try on wigs and clothes. I want to make her an outfit before I introduce her -- watch for her next week.
