Special thanks to Birthdayinabox.com for providing the toddler costume for review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are strictly my own.
I recently revealed our 16 month old’s Halloween costume on Facebook. She is going to be a little owl! Her toddler costume received unanimous approval, as well as a few questions about how I made it.
How I made it??? I can’t sew on a button properly, let alone sew a costume! And that brings me to what I wanted to say to all the moms and dads out there who are feeling the pressure to create a costume, and that pressure is stressful, rather than exciting and fun:
Buy the kid a costume.
You do NOT have to spend hours upon hours sweating it out by your sewing machine. And if you are like me and have no sewing skills, you don’t have to spend even a single minute feeling guilty that you won’t be whipping up something one-of-a-kind. Or even worse, convincing yourself that you can learn how to sew in your spare time and THEN put together that fabulous costume idea you saw in Parents magazine.
It’s already October 1, y’all. Let that dream die, already.
There’s not a thing in the world wrong with making a costume, especially if that brings you joy and happiness. But don’t let it suck the life out of you, and definitely not when there are so many cute options out there. Just feast your eyes on this feathered friend!
This owl costume came straight from Birthdayinabox.com. This site is a fantastic resource, not only for cute costumes, but also for party ideas and all the party supplies you could ever need!
