homemade costume

Items already owned: pink receiving blanket, white hat (with super secret super awesome detail), white tights, white long-sleeved onesie, and bunny slippers.

Items purchased: embroidery needle, embroidery floss, small shower pouf, fabric paint, and Heat n Bond.

Fusing the fabric from the blanket onto the onesie and hat took less than five minutes. And yes, that is the hat, just with the knot untied! I couldn’t believe it was in the closet all along, as I was searching for baby-sized bunny ears.

Stitching around the onesie took me about an hour! I did this at about three in the morning, while watching a movie. I was planning on doing the same for the ears, but it would have been near impossible to maneuver the needle around the tiny ear pocket. I used the fabric paint to draw the stitches on, but then accidentally smeared a section. I then smeared the paint all around, and thought it ended up looking decent.

The only photo (as of now) with her tail on.

and from the iPhone…

    Great looking costume! Looks like there were a few tears there for awhile. I guess your little bunny found out she didn’t get any Halloween candy, even though she looked so cute…
