So, for some reason, I have decided that I would really like to make my kids their Halloween costumes for as long as they will let me. But I am not one to spend a lot of time with an elaborate costume. I try to find ideas that are fairly simple (cheap) and quick. Here are the ones we have come up with so far.
2012: Football 1 month old and Football Player 2.5 Years Old
Having a newborn at Halloween kind of narrows the options, but I saw this on pinterest months ago and knew it would be perfect. The football onesie was very easy. Dyed it brown, and then used fabric glue to attach white bias tape that I already had in my craft supplies. Brian gets the credit for making the stitching look as realistic as possible. Bias tape worked much better than ribbon, which the glue kind of bled through on. We put a green sleeper underneath for warmth, and thought it could double as a the green grass on a football field.
2011: Johnny Appleseed: 1.5 Years Old
2010: Chocolate Chip Cookie 6 months old
