Who doesn’t love a baby in a handmade costume?? I designed this Baby Butterfly Costume for The Hook Nook Life blog, and now I’m so excited to be able to share it here with you!
This outfit shares the same onesie and hat base as the Baby Bat Costume that I released last year, and now I’m really wanting to create more baby costumes. If you’re a knitter as well, you might be interested in the Baby Kitty Costume. Babies are just SO cute in these!
This little model is my youngest son’s best friend (if you are new here – hi! – I have four little boys under age 10 so no girls to model for me!). She and my guy love hanging out and we had a blast getting these pictures. He is off running around in the background and I was trying to get shots without him in them!
You will need to do some seaming for this costume, as well as sew in some snap tape (you can get it at any local craft store, usually near the elastic and they sell it by the yard). It’s not hard, though!
The front and back are crocheted flat, then seamed at the sides and the snap tape goes in the crotch and shoulders. You could also do buttons if you don’t want to do snap tape.
