A Few Sneak Peaks

October 20, 2010

I am in full swing Halloween costume mode.  And holy smokes it is turning out so much better than I expected!  I think I’ll finish Creamie’s costume by Friday, that’s the master plan anyway.  We’ll see how it goes.  I didn’t really think through the whole thing in the beginning.  If I had I probably would have designed a pattern that didn’t require me to cut out 64 separate pieces.  So far.   So, besdies all those little beensy pieces, her costume has required

costume thread

Five new spools of thread.

lots of pins

A lot of pinning of a lot of small pieces.  Like, an awul lot.

seventy yards of sequins

And seventy yards of sequins.  Well, I bought seventy yards… I haven’t used them all yet.  Key word, yet.  I have a feeling a lot of late nights are in my near future.  But it is going to be so worth it.  I can’t wait to show you her costume, and then, hopefully, mine!

    you are SEW awesome! I LOVE the colors and am marveling at the crazy amount of work you’re putting into this. You get the super mom of the decade award.

    P.S. I haven’t made my kids costumes in a couple of years, but I just bought fabric last night. Wish me luck. I have too much to sew in the next six days.

    Oh I can’t wait either!

    I got the stuff for S’ costume on Monday. I’m a bit scared. I sew with quilting patterns… not sewing patterns!

    I am really excited to see little Miss Creamie in this!

    Late nights in the near future? Secret: Erika is at 1,298 consecutive late nights and counting.

    My mom always said to never sew when you are tired. Apparently, Erika would never understand this because it is impossible for her to be tired while sewing. No caffeine required.
