9 Favourite DIY Baby & Kid’s Costumes

by Christina Dennis

One of my favourite things to DIY are costumes and dress-up clothes for my daughter. They’re so fun to dream up and I even find them fun to sew. You can use so much imagination when sewing and crafting children’s costumes – bright colours, fun trims, shine, glitz, dimension… you can use them all and it’s OK! With Halloween on it’s way, I’m sharing with you nine of my recent absolute favourite baby and kid’s DIY costumes. These are simply too adorable not to share, and most of them are fairly easy to make. Are you ready to get your cutie-pie craft on?
