Another Birthday Dress

Here's Anna's birthday dress.



I used   McCall pattern 6594.  This dress went together very quickly.  I did change the flower on the belt to this flower with a fabric covered button.  I also made the belt close with velcro rather than a button.

Cuter Than Minnie Mouse

We just returned from Disney World so we've seen a lot of really cute mice lately, but I have to say that Darla is the cutest of them all!!  Here she is in the mouse costume I made her for Halloween.




I used  Simplicity pattern #2506.   The main part of the costume was great--pretty simple.  The fit of the hat is a little off.  The opening for the face should have been bigger and it could have been several inches longer in back.  Unlike the rest of the pattern, the hat sizing is small, medium or large.  The pattern definitely needs some adjustments.

More Halloween

I realize most everyone has started thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I'm a little slow!  Here's another Halloween costume.  Lucy wanted to be a pink cat so I used Butterick pattern # 3238  and whipped her up a costume.   The pattern was easy and went together well.  Here she is:

Cupcake Costume

We have a deliciously sweet granddaughter who was a cupcake for Halloween!  Her mother sent me this picture for inspiration and here is what I can up with.


This was super simple to make.  

1)  Buy a t-shirt and slit it down the back




2)   Cut a strip of brown felt --  mine is about 14" wide and 60 " long.   Next make a pintuck about every inch.  I did not measure,  just folded and sewed how easy is that!

3)  Now stitch the felt onto the shirt, stretching the shirt as you sew.  I stitched mine a couple of inches down from the armhole.


4)  The pink frosting is just a circle with a scalloped edge and felt circles.

5)  Finally, I stitched velcro onto the little dress and frosting.

Here's the little cutie pie (or should I say cake)!
