Despite it being only the beginning of October, the crafty bloggy world is already a-twitter about Halloween. It's like the biggest event in the crafting calendar. I'm not much of a forward planner when it comes to sewing things for my own family, but Halloween costume fabric requirements would normally fall outwith the stash. Unless I make them go as Michael Miller and Amy Butler. Which, yes, would be funny. But only in limited circles. So I'll definitely need to buy some specialist fabric. But what to make? Don't tell me to ask them. I'm too much of control freak to spend my time sewing something atrocious and I'm 98% certain that Maia would request a Princess Ballerina. And Jamie a Care Bear. I'm not going to have that on my conscience.
A reminder of the costumes I made them last year:
If you want, I'm happy to discuss how much they've grown in a year. Before you ask, I don't know why Maia has turbo powered hair follicles. I suspect it's to torment me.
So, crafty peeps: what costumes are you making for the kids this year? Non-masochistic folk: what costumes are you buying?
