The Halloween magic is strong in our house this week....the kids get so excited to dress up as their favorite characters and enjoy seeing all of the other costumes during the festivities. While I wish I could still coordinate outfits, I do love how they all have such unique interests and each picked one that reflects their personality perfectly.
We started the boys outfit with a white sweatshirt and sweatpants, after a trip to Joanne's with several yards of colorful felt, it was cutting and heat bonding time to bring Marshall from Paw Patrol and Buzz Lightyear to life. Kyleigh was originally planning a chocolate chip cookie shopkin, but a last minute switch to batgirl turned out to be a really cute outfit that we created out of a black leotard.
With halloween in 1 day, we have been so lucky to already get good use out of the costumes between dance and school parties. The real fun is the trick-or-treating part and can't wait for some beautiful weather this year!
While I usually have every intention of creating a tutorial on my progress, I typically keep cranking along that I forget to take a step back to photograph. This time, I did take a few, doesn't give the entire process, but a quick sneak into some of the details. This is the first time I have used my silhouette for anything other than paper and I absolutely loved it! Also, would love to learn how to sew one of these days, but the heat bond I used was amazing, so glad I did not even attempt a glue gun.
All in all the kids are in LOVE with the costumes and so am I.....Happy Halloween everyone!!!
