Instead of following the latest movie craze, give your kids a chance to win originality points (and maybe extra candy) on the trick-or-treating circuit with these five adorable cut-and-sew projects. From rainbows and unicorns, to friendly fish and a sweet treat, these clever kid’s costumes will make lasting lasting memories for everyone.
A handmade Halloween wouldn’t be complete without the appearance of pumpkins! Decorate your stoop with festive fabric pumpkins made in Cypress Cotton Canvas or Eco Canvas. Make and stack a few in multiple sizes and designs for added effect. The best thing about this DIY project? Unlike real pumpkins, once the trick-or-treaters are gone, you can store these pumpkins in the attic for next year!
This Halloween, treat yourself to an easy DIY that can be completed in under 30 minutes, which means more time for working on handmade costumes for the little ones. With a little help from the Fill-a-Yard™ 9″ Square Cheater Quilt in Fleece, this DIY bunting requires very basic sewing but is still full of festive, Halloween flare. Download your free template and get started today!
Is your little one a Picasso in the making? Celebrate their love for art this Halloween with a DIY project that requires just one yard of fabric! The only scary thing about this costume is how little space you’ll have left on your phone when you’re done capturing your budding artist in this soft Minky look. Follow along as Samarra Khaja, aka sammyk in the Marketplace, shows you how to recreate this one-yard wonder.
