I survived the sewing...
They had bags to collect their treats in. I made it the same as the bedtime bag but added some elastic at the top to help keep the candy inside. I let the kids pick out the fabric. Disney for him and purple sparkly bats for her.
And they had costumes to wear. You know how sometimes you see a pattern, or a fabric/yarn and it speaks to you. Jumps out and grabs you and you can't ignore it no matter what. Well the mermaid pattern really spoke to me....LOUDLY. Do you know what it said???
I hate you and I will thwart your every attempt to finish me. Note to self "You are not smarter than the pattern so don't skip any steps. They are there for a reason and if you leave them out you will just have to redo it" Ahh my love of sewing continues.....
Elmo and Ariel had fun though and I'm glad it's over for another year.
There was much celebrating. A lot of family and friends to walk around with to trick or treat and chili with some adult beverages awaited us at home when we were done. I'll be back in a couple of days with the November knit a long.
P.S. I'm done with knitting my clasica coat and just need to seam. Bring on the wine :)
