I posted this in Halloween before I found out there was a challenge.  So I hope it's okay that it's been cross posted!

So it was my 7.5 month old daughter's VERY FIRST HALLOWEEN.  How could we NOT go handmade? This cost us less than $3 to make, and took about 3 hours.  Which was a good thing, since I was a bad last minute mommy and waited until the last possible week to start working on this.





I made the wig out of some cheap, stretchy fabric I found in the clearance section of our local craft store. The buns are just long tubes stuffed with filling I took out of an old pillow. I hand sewed the buns to the main part of the hat and voila! Instant hair for baby!

Her "gown" was made from an old shower curtain. It was barely used (the top plastic backing for the shower rings had fallen off) and it had a slight sheen which made it perfect for the gown.  I took a shortcut and instead of hemming the sleeves and skirt, I cut the pieces I needed out along the bottom of the shower curtain hem. It saved a lot of sewing time!

My husband made the belt.  He works at a sign shop so he used some scrap banner material left over and the silver accents are just silver vinyl.

She had a little stuffed gun too! But I didn't get a good shot of it. Also, we just put a white terry sleeper that we happened to have under her gown since we didn't have white boots for her.

Here's one more picture of her standing:



Hope everyone had an awesome (and safe) Halloween!

Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments!!! My sister in law is expecting at exactly the same time our baby girl was born.  Maybe they can reuse this costume next year Smiley It's all about the 3 R's in this household! Cheesy

Possibly the best baby costume ever. Could only be made better if you all went out as characters from the movie. Did you? Say yes, I wanna see!

Aw thank you! Alas, no, we didn't all dress up.  Would've been cute if my husband managed to be Darth Vader.  Bad planning on our part, just not enough time.  I also thought it would've been even cooler if husband and I dressed up as Storm Troopers, since we had to carry baby around.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Something to keep the Bodum warm! on: May 25, 2008 10:21:51 PM
So my parents-in-law drink copious amounts of tea...meaning their Bodum gets a lot of use.  My mom-in-law was using a shabby (albeit clever) method of using an old dish towel sewn up on one side as a tea cozy.  She's an avid gardener and their kitchen is awesomely amazingly and I couldn't let the ragged dish towel cozy madness go on any longer than it already did.

So I went out and bought some wonderful Cascade 220 wool and got to schemin':





What do you guys think? I'm already thinking about doing up another garden-themed one for her...
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My Very First Bag, A Yoga Mat Bag !! on: April 13, 2006 06:49:52 PM


Here she is! FINALLY DONE.  The very first bag I've sewn, first zipper too.  I was originally planning to add a lining but I got carried away with the progress I was making and it was a bit too late by the time I remembered the lining. 



I'm so glad it's finally done.  I definitely am NOT a sewer.
