I am far from an expert when it comes to sewing but I can handle a simple pattern. And, a homemade costume is so much better than a store-bought one.
Superhero Sewing is an adorable collection of sewing projects for creative playwear that encourages and satisfies your kids’ love of – and need for – unique and richly imaginative play.

So grab your scissors, fabric, and thread, and create fantastic characters for everyday play your kids can call their very own!
This informative and inspiring guide includes:

This is such a great book for those that want to make their children’s costumes. There are options for both boy and girl costumes in a variety of themes. Each pattern explains what you’ll need to create the costume as well as what patterns are included.
There are no super complicated patterns or expensive sewing items required. The basic terms are explained and the directions are very easy to follow for beginners. This book is definitely a great place to start.
