I'm going to be buying a sewing machine this week and one of the first things I will be sewing is my baby's Halloween costume. I am thinking that a baby bee or baby pumpkin would be cute. When I was in Hobby Lobby they didn't have any costume patterns like that in baby size. Anybody have any ideas what I should do? It needs to be pretty easy as it will be one of my first things to sew.

How about a chili pepper or a pea pod? This is KwikSew 3446. KwikSew patterns are really well drafted, no horrible surprises or impossible things, and have great instructions. They have a selection of easy beginner patterns that are especially good for the novice sewer.


Cute!

I have made simple orange bunting with Brown hood. I then make a pumplin smilie face and triangle eyes/ nose and use the repositional glue to stick them on the front. Make green felt leaves and put on green yarn and tie to the neck of the bunting. You can take off the trimming and have a sleeper for emergency use (you know how it goes, baby gets sick when all other bedding is already dirty).

Along similar lines, I want to dress my three-month-old daughter as a chicken but haven't been able to find a pattern yet. If anyone responding to Thing2's post has seen a chicken costume pattern, please send a link my way! Thanks in advance...

I made the Kwik Sew pea pod costume last year for my grandson who was 6 months old at Halloween. It was very cute on him (PatternReview.com. One suggestion if you choose to make that one: make the top "pea" detachable because it tended to bother him.

My son will be 6 months at Halloween - I'm using a 'toddler' costume from Simplicity (he wouldn't stand for a bunting, so those were out). The 1/2 size should be close to his length at the time the big night arrives.

Simplicity 2791 has a really cute chicken costume, as well as a pink poodle,a pirate,and a skunk. Size A includes sizes 1/2 thru 4. I was going to make the poodle for my yet to be born granddaughter, but found and infant size poodle costume online instead. Unless she is a giant, size 1/2 will be too big for a newborn. I'm making a border collie costume for my 3yr old grandson. I used a New Look PJ pattern as the base and will make the ruff and paws and tip of the tail out of white fake fur. I used black fleece for the top and pants. I figure it can be transformed into any number of different characters for a future Halloween.Sewing costumes really is fun.
