Hold me closer tiny dancer…
How sweet is this little costume?! You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make! We purchased tulle and ribbon from the craft store that matched our Blossom Baby Wrap almost perfectly. We originally bought 7 yards of tulle with the intent to make mommy a ballerina tutu as well. It of course looked adorable, but we decided to try it out without the adult tutu since not all moms want to dress up. Both are equally cute, so it just depends on how much effort and time you want to put into prep.
To make the tutus, we began by cutting the tulle into 6″ strips. For the baby tutu, we then cut the 6″ strips into quarters and tied them onto the ribbon. (Look up no-sew tutu tutorials online – they’re super easy.) We made the baby tutu just wide enough to cover her back and left the ribbon long enough to tie around both baby and mama. Add a ribbon to your hair and there you go – an adorable mini ballerina!
If you use this costume idea (even with another carrier – don’t be shy), please tag us on instagram and use #happybabyhalloween. We would love to see it. 🙂
