Is it crazy that I want to make a costume for Dia. I mean at 8 months old, she is too young to go trick or treating but I want toIt's her first!

Can you guys suggest an easy pattern for a costume?

8 months is not too young to dress them up -- I'm working on costumes for my two youngest grandkids. They are going to be Toopy and Binoo from Treehouse TV.

My little grand-daughter will be Binoo and she will only be 5 1/2 months old by the time Halloween rolls around. My 22 month old grandson will be Toopy.

Go for it -- it will only be Dia's first Halloween once.

I made one for my DGD for her first Halloween 5 years ago. Her birthday is August 5. Her mother requested a Dopey costume. I made little brown pants and modified a kwik sew baby kimono pattern to make an olive green coat. A little blue elf hat and it was done.

I just used a cut-down shirt of DH's, with a scary picture painted on the back in puffy paint (the kind that puffs up when heated)...since the kid was in my arms most of the night, I thought that the back was the best "display" area. Of course, that kid is now shaving...

Not too young at all. I had my kids in costumes for their first halloween. One of my kids was dressed up as a tiger at 3 weeks old. (orange sleeper with black stripes).

Simplicity has a bunch of what they call toddler costumes, but they would fit an 8 month old.

My 4 month old DGD has a book with a pink giraffe in it-therefore she will be a pink giraffe for Halloween. It will be a pink knit sleeper with a bunch of fuchsia spots topped off with a hood with little horns and ears. Should be fun.

This is for all those comments about "she is so cute I could just eat her up!"

A pumpkin costume is a classic (for your little pumpkin). Our pumpkin was 6 mos old. And now, like Dotmoll's, is shaving and likes "edgy" cartoons....

Anything with a hood with little ears is also quite fetching.

You're never too young to have fun! Our daughter loved to watch people, and our town has a huge parade which she really enjoyed. I don't remember dressing her for the first one, but I have seen cute little pea-in-the-pod and pumpkin costumes which are so cute!

Seems like all you would need would be a green bunting, and you could easily add little circles for the peas... (I'm trying to add a pic, hope this works)

I think one of the best things about being a parent is getting to enjoy holidays with your kids! Even if they're too young to know what's going on, it still makes it more fun for you :)

I made my daughter a bee costume for her first Halloween from Simplicity 3558 (OOP). It was basically a fleece bunting with some shaggy black fleece stripes and a little hat. I coordinated by sewing some stuffed petals to a headband to be a flower:

Unfortunately, it was about 70 degrees here and she ended up in some Halloween pjs instead, to be a little cooler.

This year she is going as a pirate, using the one view I haven't sewn yet from Simp 3650. My son is going to be about 4 1/2 months by then, and I'm going to applique a onesie with some kind of pirate design for him and make some lightweight pants. I'm also going to embroider "My children are my treasure" on a shirt for myself. It's probably cheesy to coordinate like that, but I have to do it now before they're old enough to protest!

If you have warm weather, you could consider something like these costume bibs. They look a little silly on the toddlers on the envelope, but would be really cute on a baby. I can't wait to see what you end up coming up with!
