What is it about holiday clothes?
I love them so.
I have a bin for each season and I love digging into them year after year.
(The fabric is called Pumpkin Party and it is made by Alexander Henry. It is out of print, but with patience I bet you could find it with a good google search.)
They have seen quite a few Halloweens. Last year I made a bigger one for Halley. After this year the littlest one will have to be passed on. Hating the growing again. Hating.
I really, really wanted to recreate the magic that happened last year at the parking lot pumpkin patch.
It might be my favorite picture that I have ever taken.
It didn't exactly happen, but I like it all the more with the addition of someone who wasn't even on our radar or in our dreams last year. How crazy is that. A new human. I love him. I love his candy corn-esque little outfit from Drew and the pumpkin hat that Halley wore her first Halloween in 2004. Bins of holiday clothes, I tell ya. You never know when you will need something again.
(Probably, maybe, never. Boo.)
It started with Halley.
She wanted to be Tiger Lily.
Mostly for the moccasins.
My mom was going to make her a costume, but when I saw this Pocahontas one at the Disney store I knew it could work. I snipped off the Pocahontas medallion, took off the belt, flipped it upside down, glued a feather in the back and called it Tiger Lily. Done and done.
Lucy is a real life Tinkerbell.
Strong and tiny, fair and flighty.
She did not need any begging to don the lime green again.
This cute costume came from Kohl's.
I planned to make her a version 2.0 of her little Tink shoes, but instead she chose a rainbow sparkle pair from Walmart, with a green puff hot glued on top. Crazy easy.
Little Miss Wendy is 99% sunshine.
But when you catch the other 1% watch out.
Picture time came during what is supposed to be naptime.
But I still think she is the cutest Wendy I ever did see!
My way too talented mom made this sweet number.
It is just perfect. So cute on this baby Wendy girl.
My friend's dear mother in law crocheted this darling hat without a pattern, off just a picture. Oh to have those kinds of skills. It will last his little head through the winter months. Jaunty feather and all.
His costume was based on Make It and Love It's tutorial. It is so dreamy to sew with fleece and felt. Forgiving, no fraying... Just my kind of project.
