Tick-tock ... That's the Halloween Clock!

October 21, 2012

Alrighty, people. We're down to the wire. We're less than a week away from the point that Halloween celebrations kick into high gear. If you haven't gotten a costume together yet, you might be in a panic. But have no fear! We have had loads of quick-project blog posts throughout the years, and we've pulled several of them together to help you prepare in a hurry.

Do you have a tiny goblin, fairy or princess in your house? The ideal Halloween costume pieces for kids are the ones that can go into the dress-up and pretend trunk after the candy questing is complete.

Pull together a lightning-quick skirt worthy of any royal ball with Tara's No-sew Tutu project.


Or, put together a Kids Halloween Mask that will see loads of play time well past Halloween.


Even kids-at-heart need costumes as fab as those the little ones wear. The next several projects work for kids or adults, and all whip up in a jiffy.

Whether you're a hero, a villain or a historical figure, every outfit could use a good cape. Here's a quick double-layered version that needs no pattern -- just a yardstick and marker: Last-minute Capes.


If you want to add a little drama to your outfit, you can make any of these Halloween Hair Accessories in just a few minutes' time.

Do you feel the need to go wild? Fast projects for rabbits, puppies, monkeys, pigs and cats are all covered in our Animal Accessories blog!

We've also got free pattern downloads to create spellbinding witch couture. A multi-layered Witch's Capelet will help keep the chill off witches on the go!

The perfect chapeau is essential for Halloween, and the Hot Patterns Bad Witch/Good Witch Hat and Fascinator is ideal for crafting an original hat to match your outfit.

Last, but certainly not least, is a fantastic -- and fantastically fast! -- project sheet for creating Costumes on a Stick. These are great for those times when a full costume is impractical, but you still want to get in on the Halloween fun.

Are you feeling ready to bang out a few key pieces to make a memorable Halloween ensemble? We can't wait to see what you come up with!
