KIDS: Handmade Little Red Riding Hood

How sweet is this handmade little red riding hood costume? Lindsay from Artsy Fartsy Mama made the dress and cape from a pattern and used red gingham fabric. I love that the gingham dress is totally wearable as an everyday dress even after Halloween! Lindsay gathered a white shirt, tights and sparkly red shoes to complete the outfit. The basket came from a thrift store.  She tied in some red ribbon in her hair, and little red riding hood was all good to go.

GROUP: Handmade Mario and Luigi Costumes

I love Super Mario Brothers as a kid… best video game ever. Amy from Maker Mama made her for kiddos a group costume based on the mario brothers video games. She found the sweet little girls Princess Peach and flower costumes at the second hand store.  The handmade Mario and Luigi costumes were made with custom hats, mustaches, and blue jean overalls!
