Oscar is getting really into Halloween, and I love it. He wants to watch this little song on youtube about 20 times a day.
Oscar and Ruby's costumes are still in the works, but I've been helping out with a few extra Halloween costumes:
Nacho Libre for my cute little nephew:
Perfect Diaper Cover pattern from MADE (with a few extra inches added to the top to make them appropriately high-waisted), the Little Leggings pattern from Lil' Blue Boo, and a cape of my own creation.
To make the easiest cape ever, just take a t-shirt, and leaving the collar intact, cut off the front and sleeves. I also trimmed the back so it would taper up to the top. If the collar fits well, you can leave it as is to slip over the head. I trimmed this one down to fit a toddler, so cut the collar and added a velcro closure. I also zig-zag stitched around the cut part of the collar to finish it off. You don't need to hem the sides or bottom of the cape because jersey fabric doesn't fray!
Next up, the Man in the Yellow hat for a playgroup friend:
Hopefully I can update this later with pictures of the kids in costume! Now I need to get to work on costumes for my own little ones. :)
UPDATE: See the kiddos in costume HERE.
Also ... the first round for projects for Crafting with the Stars is up HERE and voting is open until tonight - 10 p.m. MST.
I can't tell you which project my partner made, but it is gorgeous and I love it. I really didn't do anything but cheer her on. Great job, Melanie! All of the projects are really well done - I think you'll be impressed. So go VOTE!
