DIY Toddler Costumes | PB + J
He's the peanut butter to her jelly-- and they sure are sweet together. As Liv & Grey are getting older, their sibling bond is getting even stronger than I could have imagined. I'm pretty blessed to say that they hardly fight and I can only hope that it remains that way. The sweetest part for me is to see that even though she was born a twin and lost her sister Abigail, God brought her Greyson. I still can't believe Greyson will be 3 years old on November 7th and Olivia will be 5 years old on November 13th. This mama sure wishes time would slow down. Im just not ready for my babies to grow up!
So how cute are these costumes? I was scrolling through Pinterest looking for cute toddler costume ideas when I stumbled upon the peanut butter & jelly ones, and instantly fell in love. Liv and Grey go together like PB + J so of course I had to make it.
I used our Modern Harem Romper pattern and used a tan and red jersey knit as the base style because they are so comfy! I then printed out the letters & clipart on copy paper from my computer & cut them out. I then traced them on to the felt and then cut them. An easier mom hack would to just purchase felt letters from amazon but I was pressed for time. lol I also made a base for the letters so I could assemble them easier and then put that onto the romper. Next step was assembly, and it was easy peasy. Can we say glue gun? Yep, I just glued the letters on and finished it by top stitching the base template down to the rompers!
Surprisingly I've washed them after we used them last year and the felt held up! I purchased the felt from here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/sweetemmajean
