And I still have 2 days until Halloween, that never happens! This years costumes are semi-homemade . It started when my ex got an Old Navy frog costume at the thrift shop for $3. My son fell in LOVE with it. I asked him if I could make him a crown & he could be a frog prince? He fought me on it until I made a crown & then he asked me to sew it on . I made it cute & whimsical… which meant making something from scratch, because all the patterns & tutes are for king/royal style crowns. Anyways I used scrap felt, pipe cleaners & some glue I had sitting around. The best picture I have right now is of him in his car seat this morning. Not bad for $3.50?
Then I decided if he was going to be a whimsical frog prince that I would make the girls flower fairies I already had the wings & wands… I got them at Wal-mart for $8. Anyways I had 6 yards each of pink & purple tulle in my shelf, so I got a couple of fake gerber Daisies for $2 each & dug out the green tops I made them for their birthday fairy outfits! Anyways I am SO happy with their tutu’s, I made them last night (NOT no sew, I took pics for a tute, MUCH faster then no sews!) & I glued the flowers to bobby pins! I just loved how it all turned out. Not as cheap as their brothers but way nicer then what I could have paid $20 at the store & I already had most of the stuff, so it was only $2 out of pocket for each of them!

I can’t wait to get better pictures on Saturday!
