skull fashion

My daughter’s Hallowe’en dress lent itself well to a crafty bite. Because it is so small, I found it easy to do a little bit after dinner most nights. I usually broke it down into similarly flavoured pieces. One evening I would cut, or sew, another I would press. Some nights I did nothing, but it was ok-I could strategize for the next bite.

The pattern was McCalls 4351. This is what it should look like.

Aw. Isn’t that one angelic looking little baby? All pink with a little bow?

Here’s my girl, the Demon Horde.

I also made a little bag for trick or treating. Pretty sure I got this pattern from bhg.com but I can’t find it right now. I made the straps too long somehow.

ETA: This is a pattern from All People Quilt. You may have to sign up for this one.

Skull BagThis post is long, long overdue. The little bean in this photo is just over a year old. She has since worn this dress on the subsequent Hallowe’en and this year my big preschooler was a kitty. Her then 3 month old sister was Supergirl. Next year, the dress will make a comeback. And it glows in the dark.

The crafty bites have been more like crumbs the last year….
