Little Tink Costume

I have really missed blogging the last week!  It's not for lack of desire, but for lack of time and energy to get anything sewn to show you. I have been knitting like crazy, but I do not have anything picture worthy. There is about 2 inches left on Caleb's birthday cardigan and then I can finish it and take some pics for you. I'm hoping to have it done by his birthday party on Saturday so I can wrap it up in this super cute choo choo train paper I found at Walmart today.
All of the sewing I have done this week has been Halloween related. Little Miss Katie was going to be Little Bo Peep and Caleb was going to be the sheep. Well, I got the fleece hoodie with ears made for his costume (pics soon to come), but before I could make Bo Peep Katie decided after a visit to Target that she wants to be Tinkerbell or "Tickle Tail" as she calls her. Therefore, I went shopping for some supplies, reached into my pattern collection and came up with this:

For the top I used cheap green satin (a pain to work with) and The Scientific Seamstress' pattern called Simply Sweet Tops and Dresses. The tutu is made with nine yards of tulle and I used the "Green Fairy" instructions from You Can Make This Fancy Filled Sewn Tutu. I originally filled it with spangles, but didn't like the look so I took it out. We have green wings that my mom found at Dollar Tree to finish the look.


  1. It's lovely and the right color for Tinkerbell, one of my favorite Disney animations. I'd love to see Bo Peep Katie in the costume.

  2. OH Super Cute! Love it!
    You should come link this up to my Making It With Allie Link Party! I think it would make a Fabulous addition!
