Halloween Costumes!

I told my daughter a couple of years ago that I wasn't going to make Halloween costumes any more.  It costs a lot of money to make those things.  The last time I did it, it cost me $50.00 and I made my granddaughter an Aladdin costume. She looked so cute and she walked out the front door, some boy came up in my front yard and knocked her down and it was muddy out.  She was mud from head to toe and had grass stain on her knees.  She hadn't even got her first piece of candy.  She was crying because she was all dirty and I was not happy either.   I decided right then and there, I was done. 

Well this year my youngest granddaughter saw a pattern at Walmart that she fell in love with.  She batted her eyes and asked me if I would make it for her.  I broke done and said of course.  It wasn't much work, but I broke my promise to myself. 

She wants to be a cat, so she picked out pattern Simplicity 0890.  It is more like a hat and here are the pictures.  My husband put it on acting silly, so I snapped his picture.  I better not tell him I put in on my blog.  I would hate what the retaliation would be.

 
Then my oldest granddaughter said she was going to be in the parade this year for band and will be carrying one side of the banner.  She wanted to dress up like Minnie Mouse.  She didn't want regular ears, of course, she wants sparkly ears and a sparkly bow and she wants them bigger than you can purchase.  So once again, I got the eye batting and had to come up with some kind of Minnie ears, bigger and with sparkles!  The sparkles are not showing up, but they are there.  My other 5 grandchildren live an hour and one half away.  It is probably a good thing!  I don't know if I could take the eye batting from seven of them at once!!

Oh Wow ! Great job on both. I have little grand daughters too but I avoid the topic of making costumes like the plague! Lol.
