Halloween 2009

Before I posted pics of Halloween last weekend, I decided to share some pics of last year when I actually made all of my kids' costumes for the first time ever. Meaning I actually sewed everything you see here (except for the fairy wings and almost everything Jonas is wearing- except for the mask and R badge- which I did make...so I guess not everything...)
Not sure why I didn't share any of these last year, you would think I would have been proud of all my hard work. Guess I felt like I didn't need any validation. (That doesn't sound quite right, does it?)

I think the actual reason was because this was my first venture into sewing costumes for my kids and they didn't turn out exactly like the vision I had in my head- meaning they weren't perfect, people!
But in reality, who knows what the heck I was thinking. It was a year ago!

Great costumes!I love the kids' poses- they're too cute :) I always love sewing Halloween costumes because nobody looks closely at a costume, its typically dark, and they're usually only worn a couple of times so they don't have to be super durable :) Makes for virtually stress free sewing (as long as I'm not working in a rush to have it done right away). So glad to see you posting again! :)
