No Sew Baby Little Red Riding Hood Costume

No Sew Baby Little Red Riding Hood Costume

Dressing a baby up for their first Halloween is something I truly look forward to. I was excited to come up with my own version of a baby Little Red Riding Hood costume and I am pretty much obsessed with how it turned out!

As if the costume wasn’t cute enough, probably the greatest part about making this costume is that it doesn’t require a sewing machine! Literally the only “sewing” was putting a little stitch through the giant button. Originally, I was going to just glue it on but I didn’t want it to come off when my baby pulled on it so I decided to stitch it on. If that is all of the sewing that It takes to make my baby a costume, I will take it!

Red fleece. The amount you need will vary depending on how bit this cape is going to be. I bought 3/4 yard and had plenty to spare.

Red trim

Fabric glue

White button



Red bonnet. I decided that instead of trying to figure out how to make a hood, I would support a handmade shop that is run by the cutest mom. The shop is called Gussy Up and she makes bows and bonnets.

How to make a baby cape on

First, cut out a circle out of the fleece. I literally sat my baby down in the middle of the fabric and drew a circle around her and cut it out. Not exact at all, then I cut it down as I needed until it was small enough. Then I put a little bucket in the middle and cut it out.

Cape Tutorial on

Cut out the front of the circle to create the cape. I would drape this over my baby and cut more off until it was the right length.

Glue trim around the edges and let it dry. Add Velcro square to be able to close the cape.

For her little trick or treat basket, we found these darling baskets at Walmart and I just put little check print fabric in it to look like a picnic basket. It ended up being the perfect finishing touch!
