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:
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.
