I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to three kids- Dylan Archer, Kyler Jude and Noelle Rose.

No-Sew Sushi Costume

No-Sew Sushi Costume

Halloween is just around the corner.  I personally don't like to focus on the scary aspect of this holiday, but rather celebrate dressing up, interacting with neighbours and of course the CANDY! 

It was important to me that I make Dylan's Halloween costume.  I have ZERO seamstress skills, but with a little imagination and LiquidStitch™, I made this baby sushi costume.  I can assure you no babies were eaten as a result of this project!



Using a ruler, measure and draw a 3-point zigzag pattern on the bright green felt.  Cut it out and trace to duplicate.

To create "seaweed" use either black or dark green felt to create this 3" tall strip.

To create the "salmon" part, I freehand drew this template on the orange fabric, cut it out and arranged it on the onesie as you see here.  I then glued the salmon to the front of the onesie as well as the grass to the sides.

I then let it dry for an hour before adding the seaweed strip.  I let that sit overnight.

The next day, to make the "wasabi" I cut out this organic shape in the light green felt.  To make the "ginger" I folded and glued layers of the orange felt onto itself.  I think sewing it would have been easier, but in the spirit of no-sew there you go!

This costume cost me a total of $15... not too shabby!  It's not professional at all, but I find that part of its charm!

From my little sushi roll have a happy Halloween!

What are your kids dressing up as for Halloween?

NOTE: Make sure the pieces are glued well to prevent your baby from being able to remove and possibly choke on parts of the costume.
