Introduction: Learn to Sew: Halloween Costume Ideas

Kim Betzina and friend, Karie Aineb, show you how to get costume ideas from costume and make-up books, kid's clothing patterns or just rummaging through your closet!

Step 1:

You can go to your local library and look at costume books with your kids to get ideas on costumes based on your skill level.

Step 2:

You can also look at regular kid's clothing patterns to make costumes.

Step 4:

After all is sewn and done, Have a FUN and SAFE Halloween!
