Available

Age: Infant to Toddler 
Time Required: About 8 hrs 
Difficulty: Easy 
Materials Required: A red sweatsuit, Black fabric paint, a red stocking cap, some green felt and a hot glue gun.

Face makeup (store bought or home made
Directions: On the sweatsuit and stocking cap paint little black dots to look like the seeds on a strawberry. Let paint dry over night. Cut the felt into 4 leaf shapes and glue onto top of stocking cap. Let glue dry and you are ready to go. I also painted a pair of old white sneakers red but this is not nessary.

OPTIONAL: Paint pink circles on cheeks

-----------------

If you are having trouble finding the pieces for the costume in the store, or if you like sewing parts of your own costumes, check out these ideas:

1) Make your own tunic shirt from red material

2) Make homemade makeup

3) Make a skirt from red material.

4) In colder climates especially, make a cloak from red material and add pink or light yellow teardrop shapes as seeds -- you can fringe the top of the cloak with green felt leaves. You can wear this overtop of a warm jacket. The pattern does not require sewing.
 
Comments: Not only do you have a costume but you have a warm costume. My daughter won 1st place in a costume contest in her strawberry outfit.
