Semi-homemade Halloween Nursery Rhyme {Silhouette Template}

Do you need a Last Minute Halloween Costume or non-spooky Costume?

The night before a school parade I found out that Tyler needed a costume of his favorite nursery rhyme, so we went through a book that I've read to him once about 4 and half years ago and picked out a nursery rhyme character.  Thankfully, I have Hobby Lobby within driving distance:   while there all I had to pick up was a Black t-shirt that was 30% off (for a total of $2.36 :) ).  I already had Mouse ears, felt fabric, fabric paint and a Silhouette Machine.  Now I can share with you all the template I made so you can make a Mouse Costume for Hickory Dickory Dock!

I made two stencils using the Silhouette Stencil Vinyl with Transfer Tape.

While waiting for the fabric paint to dry (I used Tulip 3D Fabric Paint Puffy), I cut a piece of black felt 36" long by x 6 " wide, folded it over and sewed it together.  To tie it onto his jeans, I sewed on a piece of ribbon long enough to make a bow.

Both Ben and our LilMan were impressed that I did this in less than an hour (including designing the templates)!

What fabulous costumes have you made that are 1) Quick and 2) We likely have the stuff around the house?
