Will and Abbey want me to make their Halloween costumes.
I don't sew much. (Since I taught Isabella to sew a straight stitch nearly two years ago.)
I decided to start with Will's costume. The bat.
It only took me twenty minutes to figure out how to thread the bobbin on Isabella's sewing machine.
After I finally figured out the bobbin issue and began to thread it, I ran out of black thread.
Why of course I did.
Dark Grey thread is really close to black right?
I've cut. I've stretched fabric. I have eye-balled measurements. (This has NOT been an exact process). I've even sewed on finger holds.
I did not get a photo. I'll save that surprise for Friday.
He's happy. And that's what really counts.
Thank goodness Abbey wants to be a ghost. This one will be easy.
Buy sheet. Check.
Cut holes for eyes and mouth. Check.
"Sew swirlies on the bottom mom." Huh??
I have deciphered this to mean she wants the bottom of her ghost costume to be kind of like the bottom of a little Pac Man. I have five days to get this right.
It's going well don't you think?
