SO I have been crazy busy but was proud to say that I made everything but Zanders black pants Smiley.  Well that & the 'ship' stroller cover, a friend already made it so we just borrowed it instead of making another.  I didn't think I could beat last years costumes but I think I may have.  The twins costumes are from a pattern bundle on you can make this.  Zanders shirt was a horrible big 3 pattern with the vest & boot covers self drafted & Parker's parrot was all self drafted using a penguin tutorial I found as a starting point of sorts.

I was shocked to find only a few parrot costumes to buy (and they were yucky!) and no patterns???  It's a parrot, everyone kept saying they looked for one for their little ones & couldn't find one so went with something else.  I am super excited with how it turned out & posted a mini tute on my blog because I spent hours looking & barely found anything!  Enough talk PICTURE TIME!

That parrot suit is possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen!

That is precious.  I especially love the great big grin your parrot is sporting Smiley  Fine work!

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

I agree! Your kids are SO CUTE! They all look awesome! The twins are so pretty too, with that lace! My fave is the parrot though. That is unbelievable! Too much cuteness for words! Good job, you have such talent!
