When dreaming up costumes for your babiekins, don’t be afraid to think conceptually. Julie shows us how sculpting feathers into deer antlers, creates a dramatic and unique costume.
1. Pull a simple cream or even tan/brown dress from her closet.
2. Add a touch of face paint
3. Grab a cute skirt (a la the grey/silver Velveteen skirt) to wear as a trendy capelet.
You can even buy a small cut of faux fur, as I did with the cream minky fabric and the brown faux fur. Wrap around her shoulder and quick-sew a couple of buttons or a bow!
4. Make or buy a simple pair of antlers (even from cardboard!), and she’s the most unique and stylish deer in the neighborhood.

DIY Cat Costume Kit:
what you need:
black craft foam
black thread & needle
2 hair clips (black is better)
black craft felt
1 black pipe cleaner
optional: black mask
For the cat ears
Draw (vaguely) 2 ears form into the craft foam and cut. Fold the ear at the end, then sew and finally attached to the hair clip with few knots. Repeat for the second cat ear.
For the the bow
Cut a rectangle piece of craft felt. At the center, fold and with the help of the pipe cleaner, join & make a knot.
For the Cat bag
Draw into the felt 2 cat faces and cut. Cut 1 long strap and 2 small rectangles. To start the bag, just sew the 2 cat face templates together (not on the top). Then, on both extremities sew the 2 rectangles. Finally take the long strap and slide it into the 2 rectangles (at the extremities) and make 2 knots.
