Best Homemade Costumes for World Book Day

Aaaargh!!

Yep, World Book Day - a day guaranteed to spark fear in the hearts of any parent who is, urm, challenged in the sewing department.

Fear not parents, I've got a fab handful of solutions for you.

I've scoured the internet to discover these wonderful creations ... they are awesome.

And the best bit? They range from the

'My! How on earth did they do that?!', to the

'I can pull that off the night before - phew!'

You're welcome!!

Let's start you off gently. How about the Tin Man from The Faraway Tree. Foil. Saucepans. Easy peasy ...

 If you don't want to go head to toe ... how about one of these fab Wild Things Masks, from the wonderful Maggie at Red Ted Art? 

“Wild”

 'GO WILD!'

This one is perfect for those who don't really like to dress up too much. A wocket ... in a pocket, can't go wrong with Dr Seuss. Genius!

Chanel the diva within and go as Fancy Nancy

Ok. Let's step it up a gear. Who doesn't like Greg? How about a Wimpy Kid costume??

For the little ones, this is just so much fun! Mr Bump ... a full tutorial too ...

 I've got you hooked now right?

Just. Too. Amazing ... white from Narnia *sigh* The tutorial does make it sound achievable ...

Just. Too. Cute. Why should babies miss out on World Book Day

Hungry Caterpillar

 

And finally. How about this version of The Gruffalo? The best thing about this one ... easy to put on, easy to take off and has a use beyond the day itself. Perfect!

Gruffalo

I'd love to know which one you've decided on.

Oh my! These are SO CUTE! The Fancy Nancy one reminds me of Pinkalicious (which would be a fun costume too). Thanks for sharing. I found you via Jump Into A Book.

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for popping by & leaving your comments.

That Fancy Nancy one is pretty good - I think even I could put that together ... sometimes its just the inspiration that is needed!!
