I have been making costumes since my daughter’s first Halloween. Thirty plus years later I am still designing and making costumes for her and the grandlittle girls too! This is one of my very favourites and hers too. The fabulous make up adds to the Queen of Hearts costume.
This costume was so easy to make, basically two pieces of felt by the yard and ribbon plus a striped tshirt. The rest of the family were dressed as Alice, the White Rabbit and one of the Knights.
Last year the family costume theme was the Circus. Anna at three wanted to wear a tutu. What a cute clown she was! I made a clown hat from polka dot felt. A paper birthday hat made a great pattern for the cone shape.
We also had a very fun Witches birthday party last year! I made these cute brooms with Kunin Felt and set up a corner to surprise the grandlittle girls with witchy attire!
The cutest part was the girls riding the brooms backwards. They loved them and still dress up at least once a week in their witch costumes. Want a witch broom of your very own, https://www.kuninfelt.com/2017/10/31/5-minute-witchy-felt-broom/
Creating for my girls and grandlittle girls is such a treat and I think of all of the memories we are making too! ❤️
The best thing about making costumes is the fun of deciding on a theme and then putting it all together. DIY different pieces, add some thrift store finds, glue on buttons, trims and make up. Let the Trick or Treating begin!
