Getting Ready for Halloween

Detail of this year's Halloween costume.

I have been sewing up a storm, but you’ll have settle for a sneak peek.

Right now, I’m up to my ears in Halloween sewing. That’s the thing with having four kids who all want the same costume for Halloween.

I’ve got my pattern picked out and traced in 3 sizes. It’s from Oliver + S Little Things to Sew.

I have so much fabric. I don’t think I have ever bought this much of the same thing at once. And it’s heavy too.

Here’s a little sneak peek. There is still a lot left to do though. When my husband heard what I was planning he said he wanted a costume too. We’ll see if I have enough fabric for that.

Can you guess what I’m making?

And one more hint.

  1. I thought about making an Elmo costume as what we have in a store is very cheap but I just don’t have the time right now.I had bought a lot of patterns for Halloween and I guess they will have to be for next year
