late Halloween post


Ok so I didn’t get the kids costumes blogged before Halloween. They did get done on time, no  last minute mad sewing dashes. However the photos are all quick on the fly snapshots.


K wanted so bad to be R2D2 ! He loves him ! it was challenging to figure out how to do it.

 There was a lot of brainstorming, I ended up taking apart a collapsible laundry hamper, using the wire for shape. The fabric is an old white curtain.


The headpiece is paper mache, sculpted over a big mixing bowl. It has been years so i brushed up on my skills here. Its glued onto a baseball cap.

A lot of glue was used. the legs are foam so instead of sewing tubes, i just hot glued the fabric around the foam. Halloween sewing rocks ! I cut every corner possible.

only photo where you can see the legs, in the gym at school

Mr. Lemons did all the details with sharpies donated to the case by the best big sister ever.


So there you have it R2D2


Little E’s was a no sew, just assembled out of things we had and then we bought a Darth Vader mask. He was so happy.

He looked like a bobble head
