Artsy Antics: DIY Halloween Skull Cap Beanie
|Kiel's first costume as a bunny at Elise's Circus themed birthday. |
Yes, the bunny hat is from Honeybaby. I just improvised the
mittens and the booties, sewed on some black thread to make
them look like paws :)
So imagine how excited I was when hubby told me that they were having a Halloween party for the employees and their families, and trick or treating for the kids. Like his first costume (the bunny costume in the picture above), I wanted it to have a personal touch, because I just love DIY stuff.
For Halloween, googoo&gaga, makers of kooky and quirky kids clothes, have a special line for the spooky season. I contacted mommy-in-charge Audrey Dimarucot just last Wednesday to order a Ribcage onesie for boys. We agreed on a meetup last Friday in Silver City, near Tiendesitas, And I got the onesie plus two more cool shirts for Kiel.
|googoo&gaga clothes. Cool right? The onesie is Kiel's costume|
for Halloween, and he can still use it on casual, quirky days
so it's a practical buy :)
|I took one of Kiel's plain white beanies as my canvass.|
|Using black cotton cloth from an unused shirt, I cut out circles for eyes, triangle|
for the nose, and 4 strips for the mouth.
|Use pins to place them securely on the beanie and sew them on|
with black thread.
|Tada! The finished skull cap beanie :) Very easy..|
|Kiel's costume for Halloween :) Ill share that story on a later post! :)|
|Trying it on for size. So cute :D|
