1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Yoda Costume for a 4 year old on: November 02, 2009 08:36:30 AM
My daughter decided she wanted to be Yoda this year for Halloween, so here's what I came up with.



We bought her pants and shirt (it is a polo with an altered collar) and belt (we added handmade pouches). I made the robe/hood combo, hands and feet from fleece.



Here is Jedi Luke with Master Yoda


And here is the whole family. My husband was Luke as a Jedi, I was Darth Maul.


I also made the capes my husband I are wearing, and our costumes are just put together from fabric scraps and black clothes we already owned Smiley
2  COOKING / Dessert / I want a Powerpuff Girls cake... and that is what I shall have on: March 06, 2009 08:30:00 AM
My daughter was quite insistent on getting a Powerpuff Girls cake for her 4th birthday. My husband & I always make her cake, so this year was no exception.







We used two 9" round cakes and half of a 13"x9" sheet cake & canned frosting with food coloring.

Pics aren't the greatest, but you get the idea.  Smiley
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My little Alice in Wonderland on: November 04, 2008 07:33:40 PM
I know this isn't the most unique costume idea, but in my defense, my daughter's name is Alice, and she happens to have blond hair and blue eyes.  I based her costume on the Disney movie (obviously).  I made the dress from New Look pattern 6448, with a few modifications: I added a waistband on the dress (the original was to empire waisted), I added 2 layers of tuille between the slip and outer skirt to poof it up, and I added a ruffle on each skirt to look like petticoats.  I made the headband out of scrap black cotton I had on hand, and we bought the shoes, tights & turtleneck (its cold here on Halloween).  I made my own pattern for the apron.  Both the dress and the apron were made from old sheets I already had, so the dress could've been a little blue-er, but I think it still looks good.  She won a costume contest for her age group at our VERY small town's Halloween festival and got a bike!  Its way too big for her (she's 3 1/2 and can barely pedal her trike), but none the less, she loves her new "bikey".

Of course, I didn't take any "making of" pics, but oh well- it was your standard lined dress.

Without further ado:
