I wanted to come up with a costume for my twins that was original so I came up with Homemade Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum Costumes from Alice in Wonderland.

The costumes were easy to make but turned out so cute. I didn’t have a pattern so I made my own. I used a stretchy red and yellow fabric to make the shirt and pants and sewed them together. I put a cuff on the sleeves. White fabric was cut and stitched together to make the collar. I added a bowtie out blue fabric. The outfit tied in the back to make it easy to get them into it.

A quilting hoop was used to make them round around the middle and tied into the costume. I wrote Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum on the collar with black fabric paint. The hats were made out of triangles of red felt sewed together to make a circle and I put a straw in the hole at the top and glued a triangle of yellow felt to it. The hardest part was getting them to leave the hats on! I was finally able the sneak the hats on without them noticing!

Hope you enjoy the costume!
