DIY Project Parade…Let's see your DIY fall projects!

The DIY Show Off
This past week I worked really hard shopping around for affordable materials and putting together a Halloween costume for my nephew. Although he wasn’t having any part of it so, my 1 year old niece will be wearing it.  I don’t know if it would have fit him anyway.  Here’s what I did…

Chicken Body:

Materials: two onesies, stuffing, 2 feather boas.

Print on onesies isn’t seen. I bought these ones because they were size 24 months. Go a couple of sizes bigger than child’s actual size. 

One inside of the other.

Sew together at the arms and neck and waist. Leave a space open at the waste.

Add stuffing (I killed an old pillow) between the layers of sewn onesies.

Sew hole at waste to enclose stuffing.

Two feather boas hot glued around the stuffed onesie.

Rooster Hat:

 Materials: One white knit hat. One red knit glove. Stuffing. 

Cut cuff off of glove. 

Cut hole in top of knit hat same width as bottom of the glove.  

Stuff the glove. 

Sew glove shut. 

Turn hat inside out. Insert glove inside of hat with seam facing up towards hole in knit hat. 

Sew together making sure all rough edges are ‘caught’. All done. Flip right side out. Embellish with extra stray feathers from boas.

Optional. Add:

Circo <em>Toddler</em> Girls' Knit <em>Stripe Legging</em> - <em>Yellow</em> 4t
Stuff fingers of rubber gloves and slide over shoes…however DO NOT let child wear them for walking, only picture purposes, sitting or costume judging. 
Natural <em>Rubber Gloves</em> Anti C by North Safety <em>Yellow</em> 8
Super cute chicken costume (adorable model!)…
