Halloween Costumes 2018

Phew!  Another Halloween in the books!  We ended up with a black cat (hence the tutorial for a simple cat tail), a Paladin of Voltron (Lance to be specific), Rayla from Dragon Prince (see more details on that costume here), and a Ranger from the book series Ranger’s Apprentice.  Halloween 2018 ended up with very happy children which makes for a happy mom! Nut-Nut loves pretending to be a cat.  Actually, I bribe her with saucers of milk so she can drink milk like a kitty.  It’s kinda like magic.  But the true magic is watching her joy as...

How to Make an Oshawott Costume

Recently, a reader asked me for more details about the Oshawott Halloween Costume I made two years ago.  Looks like I dropped the ball and never shared details about what I used to make the costume.  So here are some details two years later.  *sigh* I used the Love Notions Moto Maxx Pants for the bottoms and the Sofilantes Hibernis Cowl Shirt for the top.

I decided to make Reef Walker shorts since we live 20 minutes from the beach (yes I am...

Handmade Pokemon Costumes

Halloween Costumes are not my favorite things to make.  But I made my kids some Pokemon Costumes and they are happy and excited to be able to wear them after Halloween too!  I tried to take some pictures yesterday before trick or treating and it was a bit crazy. So not super great pictures… Here we have Fennekin, complete with a giant tail. And here is Teddiursa, with a cute little tail and floppy ears. I used the Summit Peak Hoodie from New Horizons Designs to make the shirts for both Pokemon costumes.  I color blocked the hood to...

Summit Peak Hoodie

Nut#1 LIVES in hoodies during the winter.  He changes his shirt every day, but wears a zip up hoodie over top constantly.  So I jumped at the chance to test the New Horizon Designs Summit Peak Hoodie.  The hoodie came together really well and I have many more planned. Recently my son has been very diligent about combing his hair nicely each day and last winter complained about things messing up his hair.  So I signed up for the zip-up version of the Summit Peak Hoodie. Flat Pattern The sleeves for this hoodie are not cut on the fold....
