It's never too early to start planning for Halloween when you're a parent. I've learned from experience that you don't want to be the parent that doesn't have the right Halloween costume for your kid and has to buy whichever leftover costumes are still there. That happened to me last year and I thought that my son was going to never forgive me for it.
This year I asked him very early on what he wants to be for Halloween and he told me a mummy so I knew that I could finagle a really cool DIY costume for him. I looked online with my wireless internet Sacramento to find all kinds of ideas for it. I decided to take a combination of all of those costume ideas.
The kids DIY mummy outfit that I've been working on hard is really starting to come around.
I even dyed the fabric with coffee to make it look all old and weathered. I'm not finished sewing all of the wraps on my son's shirt and pants but I'm going to have it finished in time for him to wear to his friend's Halloween party.
