381  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Pompey the (not so) Great on: November 02, 2008 03:45:52 AM
I absolutely love this costume.  It is adorable!  I especially love the knitted hat.  I'm jealous, I wish I could knit!  Cry  The knitting looks a bit like chainmail...it would be cool to see the chest piece you made with the knitting for that chainmail effect.  Very cool!
382  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Argh! A pirate's life for me! on: November 02, 2008 03:42:15 AM
I was poor this year (aren't we all it seems!) and wanted to make a costume for my toddler son that wouldn't cost me anything.  I did end up having to pay a few bucks for accessories and for the vinyl (a.k.a. my "faux leather") for the boot covers and the "belt".  I did not use a pattern.  Instead I made my own from clothing of his that fits him now.  I was inspired by a pirate costume online.  Here is the inspiration picture:

I decided on a pirate because I knew my son would know what it was and I already had everything for it in my scrap fabric pile!  Yeah!  Here are two pictures of the final product:

That is so freaking hilarious!  That makes me feel truly challenged for next year's costume!  I am gonna have to "bring it" to ever be able to top something like this!   Cheesy
384  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / A Pirate- Themed Treasure Hunt! on: October 28, 2008 04:09:58 PM
My nephew is really hard to shop for, so I understand your dilemma.  On top of that I am trying to stick to a handmade-by-me gifts ONLY rule lately (It's been saving me a ton of money!).  Anyhow, most boys in that age range are really into the Pirate of the Caribbean movie series.  I came up with a full blown tutorial for a treasure hunt; everything from the treasure chest to the clues!  The tutorial is on my craft blog here:  http://snazzlecraft.blogspot.com/2008/10/pirate-treasure-hunt.html

I have lots of pics and printable clues for your treasure hunt.  It was a hit at my nephew's birthday and I'm sure it would be at any other little boys!  The cool part is that it could be adapted for a girl as well!  Just make the pirate chest into a pink and purple princess treasure chest and do a princess themed hunt!

Hope this helps!
