Baby Squid Costume Tutorial + Free Pattern

So it's almost Halloween which means it's time to get costuming! One of the requests I got on my youtube channel was to make a costume for my baby (it will be his first Halloween) and after much pontification and searching the vast plains of the inter webs I decided I would make him a squid. 

When it comes to sewing I would classify myself as a "serious dabbler". My mom started teaching me to sew as a young girl. Some of my earliest memories are of her sitting at the machine sewing me lace edged dresses and my very own childhood Halloween costumes... I've even sewed a wedding dress or two (just for fun... because... I'm a freak).

This costume was a lot of fun to make AND a lot of work, and truthfully I am super excited to share it with you guys.

Here is the PDF pattern and instructions!

What I love about fall.

10. All the good shows are back on.. the highly addictive adult soap operas thinly shrouded as dramas, the comedies starring the quirky fish out of water type trying to conform to radically different social surroundings because of some unexpected trauma… *sigh. I’m not gonna lie, I like it all! Sometimes I get angry because I’m like “Dear Grey’s Anatomy writers, NOBODY gets shot/pregnant/divorced/sliced up by helicopter blades THAT many times in a year AND still manages to cure Diabetes!”. But like a moth to a flame, or a pre-teen girl to Justin Beeber, I just can’t help myself.
