Baby Unicorn Costume Tutorial

Updated: Nov 7, 2018

Okay, since I didn't make a tutorial, or time lapse video of any kind for my YouTube channel for my daughter's Halloween costume, I decided to make up for it here.

This year, my little kitty wanted to dress up as a Unicorn, so I got the chance to make her costume. I'll be honest, it was a blast.

So, here's how I did it:

I used a pair of white hooded footie jams as the foundation for the costume that I purchased on Amazon. (The hood is important for building the mane.) I also got several skeins of satin ribbon for 50% off at Hobby Lobby. (Woo-hoo!) I used two sheets of white felt, and my girl picked these super cute unicorn glasses out at Zurchers.

I built the mane by sewing 30 button holes into a strip of white felt measured to the length that I wanted the mane.

Then, after sewing the strip onto the hood and down the back of the white hoodie jams, I cut six 1.5 ft ribbon strips of each color and tied them through the button holes. (Two ribbons per hole)

I also made sure to singe/melt the ends of each ribbon with a lighter in order to keep them from fraying.

When the mane was finished, I moved to the tail. I cut out three 3 ft strips of each color of ribbon, then folded them in half and knotted each end like this:

Then I began zig-zag stitching the ribbons together to create a strip like this:
