With Halloween right around the corner I decided that it was time to get started on making costumes for the littles. My mom was always good at making me costumes so I thought that I would give it a go as well. For some unknown reason, I decided the theme this year would be popcorn. With encouragement from my crafty friends, I set out to make my very first costume(s).
I didn't have a pattern but had a clear visual in my head on how I wanted them to turn out. With a quick trip to Jo Anne's, I had all the supplies including wooden letters for me to trace, felt and foam. I unearthed my sewing machine which has been waiting patiently in my storage and got to work.
Getting started with the sewing machine!
Not only did I manage to make two (!) homemade costumes, I had the them finished in time for our annual twin club Spooktacular event this past weekend! I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with the results!
Ta-da! My little bag of buttered popcorn!
