Dress-ups and costumes to make and give.

November 23, 2010


Tutorial in the making..... stay tuned.

While you are waiting for my upcycled dress-up tutorial, check out these great ideas.

They all have accompanying tutorials, of varying difficulty , for you to try.

Any child on your Christmas list under five will love a dress-up or costume to unleash their imagination. I can think of lots of older kids who would love these as well.

    Great collection of costume ideas! I’ve made the Peter Pan one for my kids, but we call it a Robin Hood costume. I also like this one http://alphamom.com/family-fun/holidays/talk-like-a-pirate-day-crafts/ for girls pirate costumes (though I’m yet to find a good source of cheap bandanas in Australia)

      Hi Abbington, Nice to have you.
      I just checked out the girl pirate costumes. Fantastic.
      My local op shop often has cheap (new) bandannas, but you can’t always rely on them having them when you want them…. or you can get them from Canteen if you strike out there. Only $4 and all going to a good cause.
      Thanks for the heads up on this one.
