Baby Costume Patterns and
DIY Dress up Fun

Are you looking for baby costume patterns and fun dress up time ideas? Whether it be just for fun, or for the Halloween season, making your own costumes can be a great creative outlet and so much fun for both Momma and Baby!

Around the Hatch household we play dress up almost daily. Children gain such a feeling of joy and creativity, and even empowerment from dressing up as inspiring characters form their favorite books or movies, or by embodying their favorite animals. You can often find me not only at home, but at the playground or grocery store accompanied by little princesses, ferocious dragons, and fuzzy meowing kitty cats. Dress up is for any time with us!

Costumes can be as detailed and elaborate or as simple as you want them to be. You can go all out and buy lots of fancy fabric and zippers and go to town on a gorgeous full body costume. Or you can do as little as gluing some fuzzy ears onto a headband. Your kids will love it all the same!

Here are some of my favorite baby costume patterns! And easy and low budget ways to come up with cute costumes for babies and toddlers alike. Make em' for Halloween or just for something fun to do and play with!
