Too Tired to Try Tuesday: Baby Princess Leia Halloween Costume


Ok, ok. You see “costume” in the title and you’re thinking, “No way am I actually making a costume!” Right? Well no worries, my friends. Not only is this costume easy peasy to make (ok, you do need to be able to make a stitch, but there’s just a few, I promise), but the directions are easy to follow, and Robyn from Hollow Tree Ventures is hilarious, as usual.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • One pair of thick, brown opaque tights (adult size)
  • One white child-sized t-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Needle and brown thread

Then there’s mostly cutting involved, with some rolling and twisting and a few stitches thrown in. And then you’ll have this adorable baby Princess Leia costume.

As always, if you try it, let us know how it turns out. And send some pics!

I’m no cooking or crafting guru, so I started these Too Tired to Try Tuesday posts to share craft and recipe ideas that I’ve come across and would really like to try but am just too damned tired (that sounds better than lazy, right?) to get around to. In addition to ideas that I find, I am open to submissions from you–either something tried and true or something you want to try but haven’t had the time to. Just send me an email at raisingwildthingsblog@gmail.com with your ideas, and I may share them here. (And by “may” I mean “will definitely”! I just confessed how lazy tired I am, so if you take the time to send me something to share, I’m going to share it!)
