halloween costumes

Well, I finally finished two Halloween costumes today - Pebbles and Bam Bam. They are for the darling brother and sister that I watch during the day, ages 3 and 6 months. The Pebbles costume has a lined pinafore style top (my own pattern), leggings, and of course a bone barrette. (Please ignore the wrinkles and safety pins where the buttons should be, I had to snap the picture before all the little ones woke up from their naps.)  For the Bam Bam costume, I used a thrifted orange shirt for the pants and brown wool felt for the shoulder strap and club.  I stuffed the club with polyfil and a loud wrapper (empty fish cracker bag) to act as a noise maker! I can't wait to see them in action!!

Now off to finish the last two costumes. Why do I put this off until the last minute ever year?

  1. toooootally cute! And seriously. Sounds like you and I are doing the same thing tonight! I also ask myself...why cant I just BUY a dumb boring costume from the store. Of course my sewing hands wont let me. Keep at it! Your costumes are looking fabulous!- dana
