Happy Halloween 2013!!!

Yay! I just love Halloween! Now it's really getting fun with my daughter being able to interact more. I can't wait to take her trick-or-treating so I can eat all the candy! Haha! Last year wasn't nearly as fun pushing her around in the stroller as a baby. This year will be much better and next year? Oh my....It'll be a blast with the new baby!

Here's a what Charlie & I dressed up as for our Church event on Saturday! I did my own make-up as the Wicked Witch of the West and had fun dragging around little Dorothy with me all night. Her little pacifier cow will have to be Toto I guess since we couldn't bring our dog Nala to complete the costume. I accidentally left her basket at home too! I had to carry all the candy she got! My husband was a good sport and carried around the diaper bag for her candy. He didn't dress up so I didn't take any pictures of him. Oh well!

Halloween 2013

On a sewing note: I made my very FIRST costume ever! It wasn't even for me or Charlie! It was for a friend of my husbands. He called me up and said he needed my sewing skills in order to make a Peter Pan costume. I was a little nervous since I didn't have a pattern to go off of or anything. I totally just went for it and think it turned out awesome! Take a look!

The Hat, Shirt, Belt & Pants were all made by me!
Peter Pan Costume
I told him to be Robin Hood next year, then Link from Legend of Zelda, maybe Shrek, then Quasimodo.....5 years worth of costumes!

I hand stitched the extra leafy parts on with X's because I didn't want a random seam line running across the bottom of the shirt. I like the way it looks.

The hat was the only part of the costume I used a template for. I found it here and made it bigger by about an inch all the way around to fit an adult. The tip of the brim of the hat was a little tricky but I managed to make it work.

Thanks for stopping by! Things are looking up with the new baby on the way! I can't wait to share with you all the fun news I have! I'll be back posting more frequently as the next few weeks come along! Stay tuned and thanks for being so patient with me!

Happy Halloween!!!
