Make a Sea Turtle Baby Costume

When I first saw this sea turtle baby costume, I actually laughed out loud. This little boy is SOOO cute! The costume tutorial is pretty amazing too.

Scratch & Stitch’s Sea Turtle Baby Costume

Cathi from Scratch & Stitch posted a wonderful tutorial on her blog for this sweet little baby costume. It’s probably not a beginners project, as it requires a bit of detail. If you’re a seasoned sewing pro, though, it’s totally worth a look.

Of course this costume is meant to be for Halloween, but I can see my 6 year old son wanting to wear this year round. I’m sure with a bit of size tweaking, you could make it in just about any size. What an amazing dress-up costume!

Scratch & Stitch has some really cute ideas, including a post about the couples scuba suits she made to go with the little baby turtle. If you’re looking for a creative family costume, or just some Halloween inspiration, this is a great blog to start your creative juice flowing!

  1. Thanks Amanda!! 🙂 This was one of my favorite costumes to make. He was even running around the house with the shell on yesterday (1 year later!).

    • It’s such an adorable costume, I’m happy to share it! My son is 6 and I’m pretty sure if I made this he’d want to live in it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing – happy halloween!
