I have always loved Halloween, but I’m not much of a scary Halloween person. I’m also not much of a dress my baby as a princess person. I’m sure that one Halloween before I know it, Alice is going to want me to make her a princess or a witch, but until then, I’ll dress her up in cute little forest animal costumes.

I used this super easy tutorial from Prudent Baby. I made the costume a little big on her so that she can use it for dress-up as she grows older. Who doesn’t need a bird costume in their dress up box?

Alice is walking just in time to trick-or-treat! We’ll just visit a few houses of some good friends, but maybe we’ll let her have a taste of candy this year.

Halloween 2011

Last year I crocheted this hat for my bitty bear the night before Halloween following this YouTube tutorial. She was such a grumpy baby back then! It’s so nice to have a cheery 14-month old for Halloween this year!

    What a sweet, sweet baby and costume! I love how you showed her last year and this year. What a difference a year makes. The face on the bird looks great and I love how you used ric rac to hold the wings to her arm. What a wonderful costume!
