Great job, mama! Both the kid and the costume are very cute!

DD wants me to make her a "fancy" witch costume. She was with me at the fabric store the other day and saw some cool spiderweb fabric she wants me to make into a costume for her. I'm hoping to make a devil costume for DS2 and DS1 already has his costume figured out (Indiana Jones).

DD's Halloween costume will actually be my very first sewing project! She wants to be a big cat (lion, tiger, leopard, whatever) and I asked my mother to help me sew it from a pattern when she comes to visit in a few weeks. I'm excited! I don't even know how to thread the machine yet

DD wants to be Cinderella. I found the pattern at the thrift store. I just finished washing the fabric and cutting out the pattern. I need to press and cut out the fabric tonight. I want to get it down early because I've been known to procrastinate and I don't want to be pulling an all nighter. DS wants to be "Ash Ketchum" from Pokemon, it's pretty easy to do that one.

My kids already have their costumes (they are going to be teddy bears). Every year we buy/make them in August WAY ahead of time to beat the rush. Maybe next year I will make them something but they are at the age they like to pick among many already made items.

I will be painting their faces!

I have made several costumes for them. Cats, owl, eagle. Felt is the easiest material to use for costumes IMHO! Last year I crocheted them kitty hats (w/ ears) and matching tails. Easy peasy!

The bumblebee is sooo cute!

I'm hoping to finish my daughter's costume this weekend.She wants to be a flower fairy queen.Originally she wanted to be an onion.I had no idea how I was going to do that.Two years ago she was a broccoli and that was hard enough to figure out.

I've sewn her clothes out of old curtains and now I need to dye them.I have half of her wings into shape.So I need to finish the wings and make a crown.Hopefully I can get it done today.
