Halloween-Ghost: Boo Tutu Costume


My first ghost project of the season....is a costume for Blythe.  The best weeks start with Blythe projects!  I saw this onsie last year at Walmart.  It was 3 bucks.  The only size they had at the time was New Born, so I snagged it, and used some freezer paper, traced the face, and added  paint to make a bigger one for a bigger baby I know. 
After I purchased the onsie, I saw a tutu that look very similiar to this, using the same onsie to accompany the outfit. 
I'll post how I make my tutu's next week, but this is how it looks without the ghost face.  The ribbon is attached to elastic, and can be adjusted, and then trimmed. 
I also made a bow.  Every ghost needs a bow. 
I really just wanted an excuse to start making bows b/c I've been dying to make a few after I FINALLY found these clips at Hobby Lobby (for half off).

SUPER CUTE! And what a great mind you have :) I am doing this exact thing for my 4 month old....I ran out of tulle tonight. I am using a onsie I found at the thrift store a few months ago. I'll be posting mine later on. Glad to see a "after" picture of the idea in my head.
