On Saturday we decided to go to the zoo to participate in the Halloween festivities. So in a sewing frenzy I threw together a Lightning McQueen costume for Miller. I was planning to just embellish a red t-shirt and sweat pants, but had no luck finding anything that would work. Mitch was digging around the attic trying to find things for Harper's costume when he found a big piece of red fabric that he used one year as a cape. It worked perfectly. I had a pattern for pjs. I used a size smaller and made it longer so that the outfit wouldn't be too baggy. I sewed the checkerboard fabric on the pants before I sewed them up. I also embellished the front of the shirt before I sewed it together. I really need to redo the collar it looks horrible in the back, but I am not sure I am going to worry about it.
There was no sewing involved in Harper's costume. She wanted to be Elizabeth Swan from Pirates of the Caribbean. The hat, shirt, and vest where found at thrift stores. Mitch spotted the hat which is actually from a Pirates of the Caribbean costume. He is lucky like that. He put her outfit together while I was destroying the house and sewing Miller's costume. We just need to get her some boots and she will be good to go.
I don't think I have ever had their costumes together this early.
Because it wouldn't feel like Tuesday if I didn't share an owl photo, here's one I finished this week.
I also finished up some coffee sleeves and gadget pouches for a wholesale order.
