Ok, we bought everything else, but I did make the hat!  I've never made a hat before so I'm pretty proud of myself for putting this together with no pattern and $4 worth of fabric from the remnant bin and some interfacing.  It's not perfect, but good enough for a costume, right?

Actually, the original inspiration is Nate the Great, the pancaking eating 8-year-old detective with his own series of books that my daugher loves.  She is having a Nate the Great birthday party next month and my husband graciously agreed to dress up like Nate himself for the event.  But at the last minute today we were inspired to get a second use out of everything as Sherlock Holmes for Halloween tomorrow so I decided to see what I could come up with quickly.

Anyway, all that background to give explain the original inspiration...

And my husband playing the part plus the pipe to make it more Holmes-ish...



And some close-ups of my hat-making skills with a fabric covered button and all.







I bet you won't be seeing many other detectives tomorrow, so there!   Cheesy
