costumes

Yesterday we got a sudden invitation to a sort-of Halloween dinner. I thought we could sew something nice (and comfy) to wear, at least for the little boys.




My 3 year old insisted that he wanted to be a Recycle-Matti (like his little lego road-sweeper guy). Well, that was his choice and not much for me to argue... I took my old sweater (which was felted a bit in the washing machine earlier), shortened the sleeves, slimmed from the seams and added a fun recycle-logo to the back. Since i still had time, i made also that "elfish" cap.


For my smaller boy I got to make the decision and dragon he was! I made this hoodie measuring from his shirt an it turned out great. I've always thought that hoods are challenging, but this was perfect. (Sheer luck!) And good thing I have such a big stash of fabrics...

Hi there. Sorry for my bad english: i'm french but live in Portugal. I saw you on Ravelry and i started my first sweet baby cap last night. I also really like your orange cardigan. Your blog is very nice, i like the "colors", the style. My blog is only in french so, if you don't understand it, it will be difficult for you. Anyway i will come back to visit you again. Bye, bye.
Oh! your little dragon is so cute.hi,hi,hi.
