So the night before the harvest festival I decided the twins needed pumpkin dresses to wear the next day... well after finishing them at 1am & trying them on in the morning I decided they would make cuter tops, & they did!  Anyways the girls LOVED them.  They ran around all day saying 'I mamas little punkin!'.  I have a bunch more pictures that I plan to post on my blog later, but things are crazy around here right now! 

I used a decorative stitch to sew all the lines on the fleece to make it look more pumpkin like.  I love the ribbon I got to make the bow... it has the leaf effect but is cuter Smiley  It is actually wired which worked well to help keep its shape a little bit better.  They took maybe 20 minutes total to make & that includes when I first made them into a dress.  The finished tops also only used 1/4 of a yard of fleece. 

And I actually managed to get both of them in the same frame!!!!  This doesn't happen often & I think makes people wonder sometimes if there are actually 2 of them.

Those are very cute. The pumpkins, all four of them.  Cheesy All the pictures after the first must have been taken at a later time, they don't look as happy as the first. But I like the idea. Are the pumpkins sewn to their white shirts or just over top of them?

The dresses came out sooooo cute!!! Grin Boy, did this make me miss my twin boys. I had so much fun dressing them the same when they where young. Now....they are big huge moose's, who stand taller then me at age 15.

You did a GREAT job!!

The first picture was taken while they were playing with the bubbles.  They were all taken with-in a few hours.  I blogged a bunch more pictures here.  These ones just showed the tops best.  They are known for making blah faces on purpose & laughing right after I take the darn picture!  They think it is funny.

Anyways the tops are separate from the white shirt.
