More Animal Costumes

I found a scrap of fabric with a fur print on it and made that into a cute little Kitty costume. I had a charm that said Kitty in my stash along with the cute orange chain and it made a darling necklace to go along with the outfit. I'm still tweaking this pattern and it's getting so close to finally being exactly what I want as far as fit goes. I also wanted to make a skunk. After pestering my BFF for help to figure out how to make a skunk tail I pulled out my piece of black fur only to find out that it was not big enough for the costume....sigh....sadness.....then I spotted a piece of pink fur.
It was big enough for a costume so I instantly saw pink fuzzy bunny. My daughter says it reminds her of the awful pink bunny costume from the movie "A Christmas Story". I think this is much more darling. Now I have two more dollies all ready to go out for Halloween.

More Love

Found a great deal on pumpkins-five for $5. Hubby and I picked out 5 lovely pie pumpkins and went on our merry way. I started to wash the pumkins to bake them and one was just shaped kind of funny. I turned it and took another look and wouldn't ya know it-we had picked out a heart.
see, I find love in all kinds of places. This year, I put some extra love into each pumpkin roll and pumpkin pie I made! hehehehehehehehe......

Darla gets a new costume

This evening I made a new costume for Darla Bleuette. I just love those cute little kids costumes that look like animals so Darla is now a sweet little bear. The jumpsuit went together really easy from the pattern I drew. the hood took three tries to get what I wanted. I hit the ears on the first try! yeah! Now, does it get any cuter than this?? no, I don't think so. She's ready to go to the Halloween Party this weekend.
