Fern from Charlotte’s Web costume

Really easy DIY Fern from Charlottes Web costume // Megan Nielsen Design Diary

Last week was bookweek for my two big kids, and seriously I love book week. I always have a bit of a panic attack about making costumes at short notice, but at the end of the day, i really love it.

This year – I got really lucky with Bunny. My darling girl is usually quite specific and complex in her costume demands – but this time, she wanted nothing more than to be Fern from Charlottes Web.

This was possibly the easiest costume I’ve ever had to throw together for her. Almost zero panic sewing! The only thing i made was the big Charlotte spider which is a just two balls of fleece sewn together with pipe cleaner legs and googly eyes.

Wilbur is a soft pig from Ikea  (which Bunny has taken to sleeping with at night, honestly could she melt my heart more?). The Jeans and tee are both from Pumpkin Patch, which she already had, and the flannel shirt is also from Pumpkin patch and i bought it the day before. Her shoes are her current favourite, DIY glitter capped sneakers!

How easy was that? Thanks for being awesome and low fuss Bunny!
