2014 Handmade DIY Halloween Costumes to Sew Crochet and Craft
Free DIY Halloween Costume Pattern List
Halloween is one of those interesting days that I don’t really understand– As a child I like idea of making a scary or weird costume and knocking on doors for candy. I encouraged my kids to make their costume and they knocked on doors for candy, by then there were parties and events because you always had the scare of crazies doing something to the treats. But all in all Halloween was fun.
Now my grand-kids are dressing up and its more polished now mostly parties and events and very little door-to-door but still a fun time for kids and adults alike. What’s different is the decorations and the marketing that goes into the day–just the amount of money that’s spent on one night–so for you crafty people or just people who need and want to save a bit of money and to bring out your kids or even your creative side–
I’ve decided to create a list or resource to help you on your way. Free Patterns are all the rage, from around the internet and my favorite spots, here are a few ideas to sew, craft, knit and crochet.
