My daughter declared that she wanted to be a Strawberry for Halloween when she was 4, but I could not find a pattern anywhere! To improvise the Strawberry costume I found a bright red quilting fabric and a similarly colored soft flannel to line the itchy quilting fabric.
I laid out 4 pieces of the quilting fabric so that they tapered toward the bottom (in the strawberry shape) and just added elastic to the top and bottom. I sewed the dark green felt leaves directly into the neck of the costume, and made the stem had out of the same felt.
The hat attached to her head via a hair-holder in a pony tail!
The finishing touch was about 200+ little rhinestones that I hot glued all over the costume as the seeds! Very adorable, so many compliments.
