Store-bought costumes can sometimes be a little disappointing, and it can be a challenge to come up with new and inventive Halloween costumes every year. Playful Hoodies by Mary Rasch (Lark Crafts, 2014) offers a middle ground. The projects in this book combine a store-bought sweatshirt and a few fleece embellishments to make a costume that strikes a perfect balance between simple and adorable. There are costumes for boys and girls of all ages, and the projects cover a wide range of sewing skill levels. The 25 projects in this book include a princess, a knight, a fairy, a jack-o'-lantern, a shark, a dinosaur, a puppy, and more. Kids will love these costumes so much, they'll want to wear them year-round.

To win one of three copies of this book, leave a comment here by 11:59 p.m. EST, October 22nd. The winners will be chosen at random and notified shortly thereafter.

P.S. Don't miss your chance to enter the 2014 Threads Halloween Costume Contest. You could win a prize package worth more than $300 from McCall's and Threads.
