I love making costumes. They are a chance to do over-the-top sewing and they sure do make the kids super happy :) We went to our church harvest party last night and loaded up on fun and treats. I was glad when it was finally time, because the kids pestered the heck out of me all day long about putting on their costumes and going to the party! So, I let them wear them a few hours early so we could have a little photo shoot.
Natalie was Silvermist from the Tinkerbell movies...
Layla wanted to be an angel. Not much of a leap for her because she is such a sweetie :)
And, one of the most awesome costumes I've ever made:
I wasn't going to be anything because I didn't think I had time (I wanted to make a poodle skirt), but on Sunday, I thought, "Well, I could throw on my apron, at least". That turned into a quick search for a chef hat tutorial, which I found here, and I whipped one up Monday morning.
