If there is one thing we can all agree on, it’s that kids love colorful costumes. The joyful face a child makes when they receive a new beautiful costume can simply warm a mother’s heart. Unfortunately, costumes can cost a lot of money when purchased through retailers. Is there any way to bring joy in a more cost-effective way? The answer is YES. With home embroidery machines listed on Design My Costume, moms everywhere are pouring their love into making their own choice of EMBROIDERY DESIGNS, to the delight of children all around the world.

Here are a few ideas of costumes moms can make themselves:

Little Lion:

List of Supplies: Brown fleece, Light Brown fleece, Elastic, Cardboard.

This is one beautiful costume most moms love to make at home. With the embroidery machines, the workload is made even easier. The key here is to pay a great deal of attention to the design of the lion’s mane, the positioning of the gloves, boots and the wiggly tail. With a bit of hard work and determination you will be entertaining a beautiful baby-lion so in love with the costume you worked so hard to make. This must go up on your Facebook and Instagram as #Mommylove.

Meatballs and Spaghetti:

List of Supplies: 2 mop-heads, foam balls, red onesie

The meatballs and spaghetti is another costume most mothers love to make. They rave about how many laughs baby makes because adults who see baby cannot help but laugh too. A couple once discovered that they could use two mop-heads (newly purchased) as the spaghetti, provided baby was well covered. They used foam balls as meatballs, and had him wear a red onesie as sauce. The cute costume was a hit not only because the parents themselves dressed up as chefs, but also because baby was placed in a big enough bowl. One of the best mommy-made costumes ever.

Snowball Costume:

List of Supplies: Light blue sweatshirt, Styrofoam balls

Babies love Olaf, the beloved snowman in the Disney Classic Frozen. So why wait till Christmas to see snow? Dress baby up in a festive snowball/Olaf costume as you sit down for another viewing of the movie. We guarantee a very fun experience. This costume commonly requires a light blue sweatshirt, Styrofoam balls and a few other embroidery designs of mommy’s choosing. This costume is fun and easy to make using home embroidery machines. It works for children of all ages; another fun and affordable way to show your little one you care.

Here Comes the Sun Costume:

List of Supplies: Sweatshirt, glue, elastic, a safety pin, yellow and orange felt pen

For this costume, you will need an oversized yellow sweatshirt, glue, elastic, a safety pin, yellow and orange felt. This costume tends to be somewhat more complicated to make than the others; however, the effect it produces makes the hard work worth it. Children somehow catch unto the brightness of the entire costume and brighten everyone else’s day in turn because of uncontrollable laughter and smiling. Babies love this costume design because it brings out what they feel inside. An awesome costume!

Little Devil:

List of Supplies: Red overalls, wings, horns

PSA: This costume will make your child very adventurous and a mischievously smiling little boy or girl. Create with caution. Literally the simplest costume and the most popular of all. Every Halloween sees little devils scurrying all around our neighborhoods collecting candy with their pitchforks. Truly a sight to behold the joy and happiness babies express when they love the awesome costume you got for them. This requires only a red overall with a tail attachment, wings, and horns.

Garden Fairy:

List of Supplies: Green Felt, tutu, flowers, wings

The Garden Fairy costume while easy to make, requires mom to learn how to make a tutu. However once that step is complete, the costume design flows with ease. With a little bit of work on the machine, and some creative additions of the flowers you’ll be looking at Tinker Bell in her human form. This costume is sure to bring forth lots of joy because every little boy wants to be Peter and every little girl wants to be Tinker. Just as with the snowball costume, enjoy the costume with a Peter Pan movie.

Classic Witch:

List of Supplies: Dress, Pointy hat, black shoes

The classic witch costume is one baby girls love, especially when there is an accompanying flying broom. In terms of Halloween costumes, this may be one of the most common. Mom’s everywhere use embroidery machines to create awesome designs of their choosing to make the costume more complete. Further, moms can design the hats using the same method, so that the costume comes full circle. An interesting idea is to grab pieces of cloth, embroider them with the same designs, and cover the broom with these cloths.

Woodland Fairy:

List of Supplies: Glue, safety pin, silk dress (tutu), orange flowers

The woodland fairy is one of the tougher costumes to make.  It is not as common as some of the others, as most baby girls opt for the garden fairy look. However, this look and style is for the “independent” daughter who wishes to stand out from all the other fairies during Halloween. The woodland fairy is the true queen of all fairies and your baby will feel this when they put it on. Not to mention the free-spirited nature of such a fairy is infectious and you may all end up dancing and spinning in circles.

These are just a few of the ideas mothers can put into creation without having to pay the ridiculous prices at retail centers. The costumes are worth more when they are self-made, and you can see the effect of something you made on your child. There is no need to take our word for it, try it out for yourself with a purchase of excellent embroidery sewing combo like Brother SE400.
