Well, if you consider “finished” to be success, that is! There was definitely room for improvement, but I just kept repeating my mantra “good enough is good enough,” and I managed to finish all the costumes only 20 minutes after trick-or-treating began. 2 & 4 year olds don’t need 2 hours of TOTing, anyhow.
Without further ado:
Spencer’s hat is my absolute favorite part of all the costumes!
And just so you don’t doubt that I am, in fact, a terrible seamstress:
Maybe you can’t tell, but I just basted the zipper in, I couldn’t get my zipper-foot on the sewing machine…this is no reflection on Liz, who gave me a great quick & dirty tutorial on zippers. I also, obviously, didn’t check to see that I was installing my skirt straight onto the bodice. Ah well! 😉 I’m going to fix the boys’ hats (not bad for 5 minutes of work, though), and I see them being worn a lot.
What a weight off my shoulders…I’m so glad I’m finished with that sewing! 😉 I knit a few rounds on my Socktopia socks to celebrate — only 1 1/2 repeats left til the toe!
Of course, it’s a miracle that I can knit at all…being that I was KILLED today!
See that? Cozy socks, a sweet note, and ORGANIC, DAIRY FREE chocolate!! 🙂 What a way to go…seriously though, Sockwars was a blast! And MamaSockster totally psyched me out…she emailed me yesterday & said to expect them Saturday…I was lulled into complacency, and then BANG! With the rip of a priority envelope, it was all over! Thanks also goes to Shannon; my original assassin.
Thanks for all the support & cheerleading, ladies!
