I let my big boys choose their Halloween costumes as long as it is nothing scary. They both requested wizards (actually they both requested Harry Potter, but I knew plain old wizards would be easier). I decided to make Kylee a cute little bumble bee.
I worked up a simple pattern for a wizard's robe with a flannel lined hood and went to work. Caleb's was the first one I did and although it has a few hidden OOPS's it turned out well. I went to work on Aidan. He wasn't actually home when I started working, so my plan was to simply make a costume that was too large for Caleb and then I would hem it when Aidan got home.
Except somehow I made a costume that was not only too small for Aidan, it was too small for Caleb! And so (after much hemming of length and sleeves and a belt because I could shorten the waist that much) the littlest witch was born!
Isn't she cute?
Sorry for such a crummy picture, I will try again tonight.
