I’ve been working this little project in my head for awhile now, what with my fairy tale kick I’m on and everything, and finally got around to sewing it up today during nap time. I found a very handy tutorial over at Indietutes and added the ears as my own little touch. I think I’m going to do a few different animals in the next week including a unicorn which is what PZ wants to be for Halloween this year. It’ll be MUCH easier than last year’s costume.
So its been forever since I posted and I figure I should show off what else I’ve been working on. I did these kokka kitty kat pants for Q last week and I made these purple panda pocket pants to sell. The cuffs roll down about 4 inches so I figure they’ll be good for about 2 years. That’s what I call conservation!
I also did this fun reversible skirt for PZ using the cinderella fabric with birdy pockets on this side and teal pants weight fabric with a veggy pocket on the other.
After two weeks of puttering through this project, I’m FINALLY done. It took cleaning up and rearranging my sewing studio to do it, but I now have 9 superhero capes to sell for the show I’m doing at the Laurelhurst Whole Foods on Saturday September 18. I’ll be there 2-7. You know you want to come!
Capes are, of course, just one of the items I’ll be selling, but for now they are all I’ve gotten done. I’m planning on also doing pajamas, something back to school and a few more costume-y items. For some reason when I think of kids and the beginning of autumn I think costumes and pjs. Who knows?!? Today though I’m having one of those,”What have I gotten myself into?”, days. Where’s a superhero when you need one?
Trick. Looking for a handmade costume for your kiddo this year, but don’t have the time to make one yourself? Check out these Etsy finds and have the coolest dressed kid on the block. Treat!
