I love that dress!  It looks nice and dressy, but still comfortable.  I had my third child 8 weeks ago so I know where you're coming from on the maternity clothes.  The only dresses I could afford were way to short for me!  Oh, and I'll be looking for pre-ruffled fabric, I didn't know there was such a thing!

What a great idea, I love the yellow one!  Now I have an excuse to buy more shoes!  Grin

Those are amazing!  I love how you did the queens hair and the look on your baby's face is adorable!

27  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pink Unicorn Costume on: November 01, 2011 12:47:56 PM
Hey all!  My daughter wanted to be a unicorn this year and she wants everything to be pink, so I made her this pink unicorn costume.  It was simple to make, not TOO time consuming, and she loved it!

The body is of course just a pink hoodie that I got at Target.  I made the mane by cutting strips of yarn, tying a knot on one end and pulling them through the hood with a large needle.  To get the strips all the same length I just wrapped the yarn around a piece of cardboard until it was covered and then cut the strips all together off of the cardboard. ( I hope that makes sense I didn't think to get any pics of the process, sorry)  Pulling the yarn through the hood was the most time consuming part, but tying all those knots did not make my fingers happy!

I made the horn out of paper.  The hardest part was to get the shape right.  I made one that looked beautiful, but I had rolled the paper so many times to get it that way that it was too heavy and wouldn't stand up.  This one was light enough, but I had to tape it a lot to hold it together.  I used spray adhesive and glitter to cover the tape and make the horn pretty.  You can still see the tape in the picture, but it wasn't too obvious in real life. (Plus it helps that she's still pretty short and below the eye level of most adults! Grin)

The tail was made the same as the mane, just with longer strands of yarn.  I would've liked to have made the tail thicker, but I didn't want to mess up the hoodie too much.  I took the tail out today so she could wear it to school (with the mane still in place).  I'm too cheap to buy a hoodie only for it to be worn once! Wink

Thanks for looking!  I look forward to hearing what you all think.  Now I'm gonna go check out all the other costumes on here, can't wait! Smiley

I haven't checked this post in a while, so sorry it took a while to reply again.  Thanks for sharing the pic of yours Jezebel_1982.  It looks great!  Tiel, I love your idea!  It never occurred to me that I could use it for storage.  I'll get more use out of it that way than for plants!  Now's a good time to stock up on buckets too.  The dollar stores are full of them for Easter.

Thanks!  I was deciding between Sewzannes and Very Baby, and Very Baby had the fabric I wanted so that's where I got all my supplies.  I was surprised at the elastic they sent me, because I had the impression that they would have good quality supplies.  The fabric was good, though.  I'll try Sewzanne's for the elastic this time.

Hi!  I have started making training pants for my daughter and they are made with double fold elastic.  I never used it when making her diapers, and was looking forward to it.  Unfortunately, the elastic I ordered was very cheap (quality wise, not price), and it didn't gather the material enough.  When I stretched it, the spaces in it were so big I could see clearly through it!  Can any of you recommend a place on-line that you've gotten good double fold elastic from?  I don't want to buy more without knowing it's good quality.  Thanks!
