Have you heard of Mo Willems? I only ask because most of my family have no idea who he is, and expressed confusion when Little Miss told them she wanted to be Trixie from Knuffle Bunny for Halloween this year.
|Thrifted clothing + some fabric and paint I had on hand = less than $7 for the costume!|
I know . . . REBEL.
The polka dots on her sleeves were made using some fabric paint I had on hand (didn't realize it was sparkly until I opened it . . . oops) and a circle of kids' crafty foam glued onto an empty thread spool as a makeshift stamp. Hooray for using what you got!
|Had I known how much my kids would fight over this bunny I would have made two of them!|
The pink striped socks are DIY Babylegs that I made for LM when she was just a wee one. Just goes to show that you can get a lot of mileage from a simple sock-conversion project . . . she's now 5 and they still work for her!
|I had everything on hand that I needed to make this bunny except the green and blue fabric . . . cost me about $3 total to make!|
Going to attempt to forward this post on to Mo Willems . . . hoping he reads it and feels the love and appreciation we have for his books (Kee-ku is obsessed with all of the Pigeon books, and LM has taken it upon herself to learn all the words to the Knuffle Bunny musical that we have on CD.)
Anyone else whip together some homemade costumes this year? I would love to see them!
