So, we decided this year to make a group Halloween theme.  My friend, Christina, and I have toddler’s 6 weeks apart and thought, “What a perfect idea...they can be Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm!”  Then we figured, the kids can’t do it alone!  So, I designed, re-created and sewed seven costumes for the group.  We had Wilma, Fred, & Pebbles Flintstone; Barney, Betty & Bamm-Bamm Rubble & teenage-Bamm-Bamm.  We also decided that carrying the kids around all night trick-or-treating (they can walk, but we didn’t want to make them!) was not a good idea.  So, I searched the internet and saw pictures of a Flintstone car recreated on Instructables.  This gave me the idea for the car!  The Instructable didn’t have measurements, so we had to go from scratch, but it turned out great.

I was hoping to find a pattern at the fabric store for some of the costumes, but to no avail, I didn’t find one.  So, I made all the costumes from scratch with my own patterns.

Fred Flintstone:  I used a large t-shirt as a pattern and twill fabric.  The tie is cut from Betty’s fabric (cotton interlock) and the black triangles are cut and ironed on with Pellon.

Wilma Flintstone:  I used a snug-fitting tank top of hers for a pattern and used cotton interlock fabric.  I sewed a few seams and luckily, it fit perfectly!!  The necklace is made of different sized white Styrofoam balls on elastic string.

Pebbles Flintstone:  I used a small shirt as a pattern and regular cotton fabric.  The black triangles are cut and ironed on with Pellon.

Barney Rubble:  I used a large t-shirt as a pattern and twill fabric, like Fred’s.  The yellow “X” is made from ribbon.

Betty Rubble:  I used cotton interlock fabric and a tank top for a pattern. I hemmed the back straight across and put elastic to hold it up.  I cut in a semi-circle from the bottom of the armpits in the front to the neckline to make the halter-top.  I sewed ribbons to the point to tie around my neck. I made a rectangle of fabric and squeezed together the middle to make the bow.  Then I wrapped a piece of ribbon around it and hot glued it to a barrette.

Bamm-Bamm & Teenage Bamm-Bamm:  I used fleece for the skirt/shorts and a flannel strip for the strap and hot glued on a rawhide dog bone.  I used a baby skirt to design the pattern for baby Bamm-Bamm’s. Then I used a pair of gym shorts to design the pattern for Teenage Bamm-Bamm.

Enjoy the pics…we sure had a blast and got stopped several times trick-or-treating for other people to take our pictures…we were a hit!!

The whole crew:

 Shocked This is so awesome! I'm really impressed with all the costumes and the car especially! You just need a big slab of brontosaurus ribs to hang off the side. Wink
