Halloween Fun!

phew....what a day yesterday was! I have been so busy sewing for my show on the 7th that I left Halloween costumes until Halloween day...maybe I was secretly hoping they would spot something at the store that they wanted to be & I could BUY them a costume instead....only Eily bit a bit on that one...opting on Thursday to be a DJ rather than a witch.

so the final sewing tally yesterday was....completed 25 tutus....made 3 pairs of knit pants for halloween costumes...2 capes..1 tunic & 1 beard!

Leo went as a viking....aaarrrghhhh!!! (or is that what a pirate says???)

and Klem...bless his heart...went as a character from one of his favorite book series..Rangers Apprentice. I loved that at 11 years old he still wanted to dress up & really got into his character. e is snuggled up on the couch in his cape as I type watching saturday morning cartoons....that alone is worth the energy put into the costumes yesterday!

I had to sew a Ranger's Apprentice two years ago! And that silly cape still makes it's way out of the closet (just a great book series, don't you think?). Sometimes I wish I could crawl through these blogs and set up a few play dates (how are Fridays for you?). Oh, and your mini Leif Erikson? I'm in giggle fits. The beard. Most six(?)-year-olds can't pull off a beard. Yours can.

Have a creative day!
