We are quickly approaching the last weekend before Halloween! Have you gotten your pumpkin yet? Any fun Halloween traditions you’d like to share?
Vampires and Zombies seem to be all the rage right now. Just before Halloween I was looking for a fun crafting project to do with my 4 year old. At my local Barnes and Noble I found the cutest little book, Zombie Felties. It provides detailed instructions for making cute and creepy little zombies out of felt and various beads.
All of the sewing was by hand so this craft is not ideal for young kids, but it was nice to have a helper there to hand me things as I needed them.
My little one loves his little zombie. Now we just have to make some more so that he has some friends. Maybe we can fit that in between now and next Halloween!
I did it! Finished just in time! I even had to make a run to Micheal’s for some tulle.
I completed the hood and attached the last foot this morning. It came together very well and it was well worth it. I can say that it was no easy task to complete and there were bumps in the road. The costume is a little large.. but she loves it so much that she’ll be able to grow into it and wear it over and over.
While I didn’t make my son’s costume, he still looks very adorable in his store bought Frankenstein costume!
Everyone have a safe and fun Halloween!
It was a Sunday morning, while reading the paper, that my daughter told me she wanted to be a dinosaur. All the dinosaur costumes looked so boyish. I decided to make her one that was more girly. Zoey picked out the fabric colors herself and I found a great mesh glitter fabric to match! I am almost done with only the hood, one foot and the gloves to finish. I was on a roll tonight and was sorely disappointed when I broke my needle mid-dino foot! Ugh! Well…this is where I’m at right now.. I’ll post the finished look, fingers crossed, by Sunday. Wish me luck!
