Sparkles and Sweetie finished up the base of their costumes two weeks ago. Sparkles couldn’t wait to sew something after her first sewing project. Sweetie jumped on board.
I followed a simple tutorial for a tunic (Bible time costume) that I found on YouTube. My fabric is sheets from the thrift store.
The girls sewed their tunics and are gathering accessories. We hope to have every thing completed by the end of this week.
We opted to purchase the boy’s costumes this year. Originally, Papi wanted to be St. George and make Dragonfly the dragon. I almost went for it since Nana bought Dragonfly a darling dragon sweat suit like costume. Needless to say, I backed out of that idea – it just didn’t feel right having my lil’ guy representing the Devil. Good call, I know.
Dad spotted the perfect costumes at Costco. We couldn’t pass them up at $24 a piece! It’s all about simplicity in our house these days!
The boys have been wearing their costumes daily since September.
