Everyone loves the cheerful bluebird. This costume captures the complexity and beauty of the bird's plumage with simple creases, stitching, and snipping. Moreover, it slips on and off easily and won't restrict a baby's motion. Dressed for trick-or-treating, your fine feathered baby can stretch his wings.
Note: This costume is appropriate for babies ages 12 months and older. Because our costumes were assembled from household materials, they do not conform to all of the safety requirements that store-bought costumes do. Therefore, children wearing them should be supervised by an adult at all times. Make sure that the bluebird wings fit properly so that your child won't trip with them. For each template, draw a 1-inch grid on pattern paper, and sketch pattern pieces following our background grid. For this project, you will need wool felt (as opposed to synthetic felt, which is prone to melting under a handheld iron.) This bluebird pairs well with our birdwatcher costume for an adorable "Mommy and Me" family ensemble.
