My homemade Rose petal Fairy costume is the coolest ever, here's why...

My name is Elizabeth, I am a mother of 3 children - 2 boys Jordan aged 10 years and Willow aged 7 1/2 years and a little girl Ruby just turned 1 years... I live in beautiful country South Australia on the Yorke Peninsula. Recently I have been interested in costume making after watching The Martha Stewart show. So I decided to try making my own...

I made a homemade rose petal fairy costume, I made this costume for my daughter Ruby she is one yrs old. I got my inspiration from all the beautiful flowers and plants that grow here in Harvest season and spring.

It took me about a month to make and design, the main trouble I had was fraying on the edges of the material and I solved that by washing the fabric once. I'd cut the shapes I wanted and then I sewed them and glued them in place. I also used a fabric spray I think it was called - Craft Smart Fray Stop, it works great and it's not expensive.

I was very pleased with my first attempt at sewing and costume making that I will continue to make more, I hope you like my homemade rose petal fairy costume as I know my daughter, family and I all do.

Coolest Homemade Butterfly Fairy Princess Costume 20

Homemade Butterfly Fairy Princess Costume

Homemade Butterfly Fairy Princess Costume

Our 5 year old wanted to be a fairy this year. I went to JoAnne Fabrics and bought materials to make her a Homemade Butterfly Fairy Princess Costume- toule, shiny fabrics (in all different shades), and lace. I had found a pattern for a sleeveless dress and layered the materials on top of one another (there is plenty of space depending on the weather for her to wear long sleeves under).

The additional ribbons and flowers are just hot glued onto the material. Her head dress was made out of silk flowers (also purchased at JoAnne's) and intertwined with thin wire and then hot-glued to make the layering effect of the flowers.

The wings were white when we purchased them and we bought purple and pink spray paints and also used acrylic paint to get the detailing. Her finishing touches of face paint and a sticker were her favorite part of the outfit! I started with a point at the top of her eyebrow and then did a semi-circle around the edge of her eye and then swirled down toward her cheek and repeated on the other side.

I made this Butterfly Fairy Girl Costume for a little four year old that had some requirements. She wanted to be a shiny, pretty, glittery, butterfly fairy. And I had to include green and blue.

So me and her mother picked out fabric, looked at a few patterns and lots of pic and some of our own ideas. We took bits and pieces of all and I created this. She of course had to have the head piece and the wand and every girl needs a little purse, never forget the accessories. The wings was made out of a butterfly place mat and little butterflies were attached to the bottom of the skirt.

She just loved her costume and so did her mommy. I hope you enjoy.
