I am so close to finishing up costumes. Well, one costume that has taken me forever. I keep second guessing myself…but I am now seeing the finish line so I WILL show you on Friday. ( I just need an hour or so with my glue gun to finish up the props and we are set!)
And the other two costumes….they were store-bought. Which at first made me sad. I really wanted to continue the handmade tradition. But I have since gotten over it….it’s not the end of the world and it’s what they wanted. And there are much more important things in life than me fretting over the fact that some of my littlies don’t have handmade costumes every Halloween. (Sometimes I need a big whap over the head with dose of reality…I know, I know 😉
But with some leftover costumes scraps Hannie and I sewed up a little dolly this last weekend.
A “Witch-in-Training Doll” to be exact.
And I think she is loving her new “head of the bed” spot which is exactly where I found her perched this morning…
The doll pattern is found HERE if you need it again.
I may go back and adjust the body a bit. Maybe we cut it out wonky (totally a possibility—I was multi-tasking costuming and doll-making) but her neck was a bit narrow for Hannie to sew.
Looking back at the original doll and pattern–I think it was our cutting skills 😉
Anyway, have a wonderful Wednesday!
P.S. I forgot to pick a winner for the fabric for the Halloween quilt kit. It was comment #16 from

I can’t take much credit—a certain 8 year old had big ideas—I only did some of the stuffing, eye-balling and the bow-making (the boring stuff).
