Except for my 8th grade TLC class (remember that?), I have zero sewing experience. Well, my little yodeling cowgirl stated that she wants her brother to be Woody (from Toy Story) for Halloween. I couldn't see how I was going to be able to find a very miniature cowboy costume for my 3 month old, so I decided to take a whack at sewing my own. It's been a lot funner than I expected and a nice release from a busy day being mommy.
I still have a long ways to go, but I'm learning from my mistakes and having a good time doing it! Thank goodness for the internet. I've been able to find tutorials and free patterns for lots of fun projects.
Here's Kassidy's costume, and NO, I didn't make it. But I did make her a trick-or-treat bag out of Korbin's left over fabric.
Korbin's cowboy vest and badge
I had so much fun with the vest that I decided to make Kassidy an apron so she can help me cook. The pattern is really cute. You can't tell, but it's an orange paisley print. Don't look too close or you'll see all my mistakes :)
Here's to many more late night sewing projects!
