Coolest Homemade Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum Costumes

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!

  4. I have a set of twins myself and every year i try to make something unique for them to be for Halloween. I was watching the new Alice in Wonderland and thought Tweedledum and Tweedledee would be perfect but wasn’t sure on how to make them. Your twins look adorable and I’m sure they had a great time that your trick or treating.
