What kind of things do I need for kids costumes? 

If you are looking to make no sew costumes you are going to need a few things to replace the sewing aspect.

These super cute costumes are easy to make and they’re stress free because there’s no need to run out and purchase a sewing machine or worry about hand sticking a bunch of details! With a few simple items you can be on your way to an adorable costume.
