Leave a comment...Can someone tell me where to find this pattern. Nothing comes up when I click on the pattern link. Thank you.

Need a quick halloween costume for your little one that takes little time to make and simple to do then here is a dinosaur tail and all you have to do is wear your regualr clothes. These can be worn by boys or girls, man or women too. The kids will love these and will wear them even after halloween. Super easy and if you want to cut time out you can use zig zag trim as the spikes.

My little nephews are absolutely obsessed with all things dinosaurs are dragons. They would flip their lids if I made them these tails! This would be a really affordable costume to make for your child for Hallowe'en. I think that it would be really useful for imaginative play centres at school or daycare. I just think that they are super adorable and can't wait to sew up a couple!


Fun idea! Add it with the TURTLE SHELL KIDS HALLOWEEN COSTUME project on here and it's perfect!
