I love how you can customize Halloween costumes when you make them yourself. You can make them in the colors you or your kids like and in a size that fits instead of a generic small, medium, or large! While it’s not always cheaper to make a costume, it’s usually of better quality than store bought. Plus, you have the satisfaction of knowing you made it!
This year my kids have requested to be Owlette and Gekko from the tv show PJ Masks. I’m using the free Movie Night Pajamas pattern from Sew a Little a Seam as a base. This way, they can also use them for pajamas after Halloween! I’ll do a post on their costumes once I finish them.

Gone Batty Top: While it is a one size fits most adult women’s pattern, try adding a waist tie or belt for a floor length costume for kids. Great for a bat, pterodactyl, or owl costume! I’m going to print this at a smaller scale to create wings for my daughter’s costume.
Kids Apron: For the wannabe little chef or baker
