No magic spells required. The witch costume is a classic Halloween costume. Start a country coven by dressing up your child as a witch. They can be absolutely anyone they want -- be it The Sanderson sisters  from Hocus Pocus or The Grand High Witch in The Witches. All you need to do is find the right fabric. All About Fabrics has an amazing collection of fabrics you will need to create a cute witch costume. Browse fabric options from our wholesale fabric store. While you are at it, you can also order sewing supplies.

No one thought that the stone age was fun before Flinstone aired on TV. The Flintstones brought utter joy and excitement to our lives but also great costume ideas. Vintage cartoons rank high in Halloween costumes. So what better way to pay tribute to the prehistoric city of Bedrock than dressing your child up as the fabulous cave girl?


You can also dress up your kid as other Flinstone characters like Fred, Wilma, Barney, Wilma and Bamm-Bamm ...""Yabba, Dabba, Doo!


Harry Potter


There is nothing more exciting for kids than dressing up as their favorite fictional character. Well, who doesn’t love Harry Potter? We all know the answer to this question. Get the broom, coat, and magic wand ready before you start stitching the outfit. 


Don’t forget to get them fake spectacles for that geeky look. 

Tips that can help you get the costume ready in time.


Start Early - Don’t wait until the last minute to stitch your child’s Halloween costume. Start early so that you can enjoy the process. This will also give you enough time to weigh your options and find the most affordable DIY solution. 

Involve Your Kids In The Process - When designing Halloween costumes for your kids, make the process more fun. Have your kids help you pick a fabric, make changes to the design and buy props with the costume. You will cherish these memories forever. 

Repurpose Old Costumes - Repurpose old clothes into something new. Ignite your inner creativity and passion to create an exceptional Halloween costume.
