Coolest Baby Flamingo DIY Costume

So I bought my daughter some puppets and her favorite one was the flamingo. This poor flamingo puppet endured many, many, beak biting sessions from my 10 & 1/2 month old. She constantly slobbered all over this poor birds beak and I would have to hide him from her so he could dry out. So this year being my daughter’s first Halloween, I decided to make her baby flamingo DIY costume. Why not dress her up as the very thing she loves, right?

So I don’t sew really, unless it is to hem pants. I borrowed my sisters sewing machine and went to the fabric store. I did not have a pattern, I just looked at pictures of flamingos on the internet to get the basic shapes. For the head I just knew it needed to be cute so I looked at more pictures and looked at the puppet and came up with the head on my own. Of course I had to make it a girl so I added eyelashes.

Oh I also just safety pinned the whole bird to a hoodie sweatshirt so I could detach it and she could just wear the jacket for the season. I really had fun doing this, it was a good but fun challenge to come up with shapes and sewing them together, sometimes more than once.

  1. I love it! I really want a flamingo costume for my 1 year old but can’t find one reasonably priced, and I clueless when it comes to sewing. Would you consider selling that costume? If so, what would you charge for it? Please email me at solewnik@yahoo.com

  2. My girls are 35 and 37 and I made their Halloween costumes until they were adults. Some were traditional-some weird. My 35 year old daughter has a baby now and has requested that I make her first costume. She wants a flamingo. I plan to use your pictures and verbal instructions to come up with my own version. Thanks for such a great idea – will post pictures when finished.
