better late than never though...
I spent zilch, zero, as in nothing on the kids costumes this year. SO proud!
Squishy's was easy. He wanted to be a train engineer (he was one last year too). So I cut a 12x12 square of red cotton for his hankerchief and he already had the hat. Overalls would have been great but I couldn't find a pair anywhere, and I looked all over the place!
For Little Big's Tinkerbell costume I used some fleece from a receiving blanket I had already cut up. I had just enough for a little tunic which I trimmed with fabric paint for a cute sparkle...I mean pixie dust
For the wings I stiffined them with heavy weight interfacing and used wire to hold them up. I added some more fabric paint for a sparkle and viola!
The headband was just a simple crochet waffle stitch embellished with some fleece stars and more pixie dust (fabric paint).
Isn't she cute?
