Down with the Sickness/Before I Blogged Halloween
Back to school equals back to the kids getting sick all the time. And we are. Look at those little pink feverish faces camped out on the kitchen floor. Stella is not as miserable as she looks. It started with Luke Sunday night. So there has not been much crafting this week. But I really am okay with it. Taking care of them is the best reason to put crafting on hold.
I am in the mood to blog, the kids are happily watching Peter Pan, and we are starting to plan this years costumes (well I guess I have been planning since last Halloween) so I thought I could share last year's costumes. Stella's cape was made using the cape pattern in Oliver + S Little Things to Sew and her dress was made using the Oliver + S apple picking dress pattern. I highly recommend both patterns. I no longer have the apple fabric so I don't know who made it. I used a red suiting wool for her cape and little red riding hood fabric for the lining (from Superbuzzy). I used a pattern from Joann's for the wolf costume. I am sorry I can't find it. And the fake fur was from Joann's. It was my first time sewing with fake fur and boy does it shed.
I was so happy with how they came out. My town does on a Halloween Costume parade in mid October which is great because then the costumes get to be worn at least twice and once in the day light. The pictures were taken the day of the parade.
