Little Bandit Costume

Are your kids Halloween costumes trick-or-treat ready or are you still looking for costume ideas?  I am just putting the finishing touches on my kids costumes and will hopefully be sharing some pictures of them soon!  In the meantime, I have a really quick easy costume idea that you can throw together and it is something that will work for boys or girls of any age!

This little bandit costume is half handmade and half store bought.  I made the hat, mask, money bag, and striped shirt (but you could buy the shirt too!) and added some black shoes and pants.  And the best part is it is really quick to make and cheap too!

My daughter has different plans for her Halloween costume this year, but she has been having a blast playing dress up with this costume and sneaking around the house.  Wouldn't this make for a really fun game of cops and robbers?!

You can find all the details on this costume and how to make the hat, mask, and money bag over at Make it & Love it today!

The Library Cardi

Little Lizard King just released a new pattern that is perfect for fall!  The Library Cardi is a slouchy cardigan with some cool kangaroo pockets.  I think it is about as comfortable as it is cute!  And I hear there is a women's version coming soon, I think their may be matching mommy and me cardigans in the future for us!

Em's favorite part of this cardigan (and mine too) are the pockets!  They are nice and deep for stashing lots of treasure.  The front of the cardigan can be lined, so you can do a cool contrast pocket if you wanted.

I sewed the cardigan up in a size 3, it should fit Em through the winter and next spring.  She may even get a bit of use out of it next fall if she doesn't have any huge growth spurts!  I found this lightweight knit at Hobby Lobby, it will be perfect for layering on cooler nights this fall.

You can grab a copy of the Library Cardi pattern HERE!

Easy Parrot Costume

Looking for some Halloween costume inspiration? I am over at Make it & Love it today sharing a fun and simple parrot costume!

The costume is felt wings and a felt tail with a fleece hat.  It is easy to sew, a great project for beginners!  And could be easily adapted by changing the feather colors to make just about any bird your little one wants to be!

You can find the full tutorial for the parrot costume HERE!
