Easy No-Sew Clown Costume

I have loved summer but I am eagerly awaiting the Autumn season. 

 Something about Fall is magical to me.  The air, the smells, the beauty.... it's all wonderful, but one of my favorite things now that I have a sweet little munchin is Halloween!

With the season quickly approaching I thought I would share Felicity's no-sew clown costume from last year.  This was so easy and fun to make!

1) I made a colorful no-sew tutu (click here to see a tutu tutorial - FYI: the tutorial tells you to sew the elastic waist together but I just hot glued it)

2) For the shirt I used a plain white onesie and ironed on heat transferred tie from Hobby Lobby (found in the clothing craft section)

3) For suspenders I just safety pinned two strips of turquoise sequence elastic also purchased from Hobby Lobby onto the waist band of the tutu.

4) I bought the wig at a costume shop for $4 - clown wigs are super easy to find so that shouldn't be a problem for anyone to locate and under it she wore leggings that she already had.  Any bright colored leggings would be cute.

The best part of the costume is afterwards she was able to wear the tutu with all kinds of different outfits until she outgrew it and she also wore the shirt with colorful skirts and cardigans during the Fall until she outgrew it as well.  

Warning: Clowning around is hard and exhausting work!

Since we are talking about Fall and Halloween I have to mention that our orange & black Halloween feather headband is now available in my shop.

  18. The latter in a manner that taught me to be constantly rethink the best way to keep my
    opportunity afloat. The Pug is certainly an extremely old breed,
    but where they came is confusing. If I just give my dog lots of food, water, love and take him
    out regularly that's enough, right. Don't rearrange furniture inside the house if it is possible to avoid it.
