Halloween is right around the corner. The past two days, I worked on my 4 year old granddaughter's costume. She is going to be Minnie Mouse - with the costume she wears in the Mickey Mouse Playhouse show. A few weeks ago, when we went looking for fabrics, Kayla was still undecided as to what she wanted to wear...we looked at patterns and fabrics. We nearly settled for Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, and for some reason, she said she wanted to be Minnie. We looked for red polka dots (or as Kayla corrected me - red with white polka dots). We didn't find the big dots, but then she suggested pink and Kayla spotted the bolt of fabric with the big white dots on a very pretty pink background. She tried on the costume today and danced around for nearly an hour. But the best part was when she gave me a big hug and thanked me for making the costume! I will be sure to get photos of her on Saturday with her ears and "shiny shoes" and all and post it here for all to see.
I had this idea in my head when I wanted to make a Halloween card. I created this using my Gypsy, using the Gypsy Wanderings and A Child's Year cartridges. (and George for the Moon)
Thanks for stopping by....
