Guest Post! Giraffe Infant Costume Tutorial by Jenilyn of Grits and Giggles
My guest today is Jenilyn from Grits and Giggles. I first visited Jenilyn’s blog during this year’s Summer of No Pants where she wrote some great tutorials on the skirts she made for the challenge. I am excited to have her share a tutorial with you guys today for a super cute giraffe costume for an infant or toddler. Here’s Jenilyn!
I would like to give a BIG thank you to Marigold for inviting me to share my “Wild Thing” halloween costume with everyone today! Over at my BLOG, I share all of my favorite crafts and sewing projects for babies, mommies and home decorating. I would love for you to stop by and spend some time with me! Make sure you check out the Tutorials page for tons of fun projects. My baby girl just turned 1 a couple of months ago, so for Halloween, we wanted her to be something that she LOVES…her Giraffe! I love things that have multiple uses, so when making her costume, I wanted to keep it simple so she could wear it as a sleeper too! There’s nothing like a fleece onesie to keep you warm in the chilly wintertime. This costume is made of Giraffe print fleece, but ANY animal print could be used with this pattern to make all sorts of “Wild Things”!
Isn’t this too adorable? This would be perfect for the little ones who love to gnaw on Sophie the Giraffe. You can find more from Jenilyn on her blog, Grits and Giggles. Be sure to check out her Halloween Wreath Tutorial. You can also find her on Facebook and in her Etsy shop:
