Hooded Flamingo Blanket Costume

Sharing is caring!

It’s HERE our Hooded flamingo Blanket Costume! It even includes a bonus infant prop/ lovey/ doll costume. Our Crochet Hooded flamingo is perfect for the flamingo lover! Use as a costume, wrap or lap blanket. Comes in child and adult size.

We just love this design and are all completely obsessed with that little baby flamingo. Even though we’re past the infant stage in our house my littlest still loves playing and sleeping with lovies. She has claimed these two babies and loves dressing up her dollies with them.

Our infant size also makes an adorable infant prop. We’ve made the baby in Lion Brand Baby Mandala for its softness and stunning color options. Shown in Dreamworld and Unicorn Cloud. Use 1-2 cakes for desired color changes. A separate PDF is included for infant size when pattern is purchased!

Child size modelled by teen

Our Hooded Flamingo would make the perfect Halloween costume for kids, teens and the young at heart! My teen daughter is modelling the child size and it fits her perfectly as a costume.

My little princess needed a crown so we topped our flamingo off with a golden crown and jewelled buttons.
