While I mostly sew for myself, I love watching my kids’ faces light up when they put on something I’ve sewn for them. It’s such a wonderful feeling! I knew I wanted to make their Halloween costumes and was little concerned they would pick out something crazy. However, I wasn’t too surprised when they picked Owlette and Gekko from PJ Masks since that’s the only show they want to watch these days! I really hope Netflix adds another season soon because I am getting tired of listening to the same episodes–ha! The kids loved taking part in “helping” make the costumes by handing me clips and sitting on my lap during sewing.
While these are far from perfect, they came together easily. I used a free pattern, mentioned on my free Halloween patterns post, as a base for the costumes. This way, they can use the costumes as pajamas after Halloween!
I was going to make my own pattern for Owlette’s wings but I ran short on time and decided to buy a pattern on Etsy. It was only $2 and saved me SO much time–it was worth it! I had a lot of light pink fabric so I just decided to sew on the pieces. It was way more time consuming than expected and next time I might just use felt and hot glue! However, it will be much more durable and can withstand being washed much better than felt.
Here are the details of the costumes:
- Fabric: Cotton lyrca from Purple Seamstress
- Pattern: Movie Night Pajamas from Sew a Little Seam
- Wing Pattern: from Etsy
- Owlette Mask: I did have to enlarge the eye holes
- Gekko Mask: I changed the eye shape and trimmed some off the bottom
- PJ Masks Logos: from Etsy
