So, the boys both decided that they wanted to be Mario for Halloween. I tried to convince one of them to be Luigi, but they weren’t going for it. So, thinking to “save” money, and based on the fact that overalls in non-toddler sizes are a bit difficult to find, I decided to make the overalls. I have never made clothes from a pattern before, and I thought a Halloween costume would be a good first project because it’s not like they have to be beautiful or anything.
So, this sounded like a good idea at the time. Actually, it’s not going too badly, I am almost done with K’s overalls and they actually look pretty good. And, it’s been a learning experience in terms of figuring out how to use a pattern. I probably should have started earlier though. Because it’s now Wednesday, Halloween is in two days, I’m not done with K’s, and I haven’t even started J’s. And now I’ve come down with a cold and feel like crap. Sigh. Why do I do this to myself?
I will definitely be sharing pictures! Ohhhh, and guess what hubby bought on Friday??! A scroll saw! So exciting! I’ve already made some birdies from that Make Baby Stuff website (when I should have been sewing overalls, but I used the excuse that I had to pre-wash the fabric first).
