Maybe some of you share my predicament. Our children are asked to bring their Halloween costumes to school for a Halloween parade. Like me, you are left wondering what costume you can send that can be packed into a backpack without getting ruined before Trick or Treat. This year, I think our plan really works!
Lily decided to be a rainbow. I loved the idea. Her skirt is made from 3 1/2″ strips of Kona from Marmalade Fabrics. I used Red, Torch, Sunny, Peapod, Copen and Purple.
We decided to make her top the blue sky with some fair weather clouds. I used a sweatshirt because Trick or Treat in New England is chilly! She can layer under there as well. I had fun making the clouds cutesy! You can read more about the applique on the Therm O Web blog today. I wrote up a brief tutorial for you. Her cuffs were also dipped in fluffy clouds (white fur strips).
Here is a close up of one of the clouds simply because they make me happy. Fortunately, they make my daughter happy too!
And my daughter’s face is the sun itself! Her crown is made using glitter foam cut into rays and hotglued to a yellow satin headband.
I’ll share some more pictures on Halloween of all three kids together in costume. Penny is wearing a costume that I made years ago for Timothy. Timothy’s request was pretty simple and only required a couple of store bought accessories. I’ll be back with those pics before you know it!
