Halloween. A holiday I could take or leave. We'll do a bit of trick or treating for UNICEF. I grew up wearing lots of homemade costumes, hand me downs from my dad's cousin. Lovely stuff. I'd love for my kids to sport handmade costumes too. Only, if I go through all that work to make something for them, I want it to be worn more than once. So, I decided to take a basic pattern and make it into a costume.
Pattern is Oliver & S, link here. Fleece was thrifted for a dollar. Buttons were thrifted and a part of a huge tin of buttons. Lining was upcycled from two receiving blankets from his childhood. And a friend gave me this bone fabric, fit perfectly.
It's been popping up random places...getting a little use.
And really, who can resist a little puppy anyway?
