Free Pattern Friday - Quick Costume Ideas

Pack-O-Fun magazine, originally published by Clapper Publishing Company in Des Plaines, Illinois from the 1950s thru the 1970's, was a scrap crafting magazine packed with easy and inexpensive things to make with what you had at hand. At some point the title was purchased by Amos Publishing Company and ceased publishing this zine in 2011. Early issues can be found online and in resale book stores. 

Considering Halloween is approaching more quickly than you'd like to think, I have reproduced these "Quick Costume Ideas" from the October 1966 issue of Pack-O-Fun magazine. Download HERE.
