Looking for a creative alternative to store-bought Halloween costumes?
Although I know how to use a sewing machine and have made tote bags and colorful basket liners, I have no clue about how to use a sewing pattern.
So, I searched for what’s out there on YouTube to give me the courage and inspiration to make a Halloween costume.
Here are some of my favorite 5 YouTube videos on making homemade halloween costumes. Happy sewing!
