As my friend Kirsten says, "It's not Halloween unless your living room is covered in fabric." Well, this year I sewed four costumes, three of which I didn't have a pattern for. And yes, my house is a disaster. But the effort was well worth it.
Dorothy's dress was a pain in the tush. The pattern had so many pieces and was sewn in a weird way. But this girl had so much fun. And you should see her loot! That basket was FULL!
The Teeny Tiny Tin Man was the hit of the party. And I have to admit he looks awfully sweet.
It took a great deal of scrubbing to return my skin to it's normal color. I drew the line at painting my arms and hands though. How am I supposed to snitch candy from the kids if my hands are covered in disgusting paint?!
