I promised Natalie I’d make her a strawberry costume for Halloween. Thinking up costume ideas is the best, but sewing them is honestly one of my very least favorite things to do. I’m not really sure why, but I think it’s mostly because the time and effort to make something that’ll only get worn for one evening isn’t super appealing to me. Although this year Emily is going as the butterfly that I made a few years ago. So there’s that. I remember my mom making me several costumes (thanks mom). And every year in college I crafted up something spectacular. My favorite one being a bag of jelly beans (I used a giant clear garbage bag and filled it with colored mini balloons, complete with a Jelly Belly label – I think that was in 1999 – yikes!).
We did have moments of fun while making this goofy fleece thing! Stuffing it was the best part, followed by adding the yarn strawberry seeds. Oh and the headband, slammed together in a hurry, but I think it’s so cute.
Hope you have a fun and safe Halloween (if you celebrate)!
