Halloween is coming soon and perhaps there are a few other procrastinators out there besides myself?? I still don’t know for sure what my children will be for Halloween, but I’m sure it will be something fun (and last-minute) as usual!
If you haven’t come up with any ideas for your little one, why not try this simple pattern! It can be made in a matter of minutes. Add a little face paint (or washable marker), some matching clothes and you have a quick and easy costume! If you have a few more minutes, whip up a quick tail to add to your little one’s rear and no one will be able to kidlet from kitty. If your little one is too cool to be a cat, use black and white yarn and call them a skunk instead!
Feel free to use this pattern for your own personal and charity use.
As always, you may sell items made from this pattern, but you must state that you used a free pattern from Busy Mom Designs and include a link to this original blog post.
Feel free to link this pattern to your blog or elsewhere, but pattern and photos may not be copied in any way without direct written permission from myself.
