I decided at 2am Halloween morning to dress up this year.  Being a bit of a hippie, I decided to go as mother nature.  I know I've seen this done somewhere, most likely on here lol, but I did make the costume off the top of my head.  My mom and grandma said I looked like mother nature from an old commercial, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out which one they were talking about. lol

Anyway, it's just a bed sheet cut in a smaller rectangle.  I tied it over one shoulder, pinned it under my arm, and sewed a seam up to the pin.  I then hand sewed the ivy vine around the bottom and wrapped the smaller vine around the top after getting dressed.  The belt is just braided hemp cord, and I made the daisy crown by braiding fake daisies together and forming a wreath.  The whole thing was incredibly easy, a good thing when you wait till the last minute!  Thanks for looking!  Hope everyone had a great Halloween!

You do look like Mother Nature in the commerical. It was for margarine, but I can't remember the brand. MN is saying something like, "Oh look, some of my nice creamy butter." Then the narator says "that's not butter, it's margarine." There is a big thunderclap and MN says, "It's not nice to fool Mother Nature." It sounded better on TV than it does in type. It was a very catchy phrase and people used to say it a lot back in the 70's.

I love your Mother Nature costume.  Darn, if only I'd thought of that.  And the comment above is correct about the margarine commercial.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLrTPrp-fW8 Here's the link for it, too! Smiley

Crafters are the best people in the world.  Plus, it makes them environmentally friendly which I also love.  Wink

ha ha That's exactly what they were talking about!  Thanks Beefknits for posting the link.  No wonder I didn't know what they were talking about, I was born in '85 lol.  I'm glad I know what they were talking about now!
