When it comes to sewing (and knitting, too), I’m no Grumperina. I just do not have her attention to detail or her commitment to perfection. Still, I got the job done – my first ever homemade Halloween costumes.
Two Little Pigs
And even though the ears turned out to be cartoonish and bizarre (I had no pattern, just my own twisted imagination), I was pleased enough with the ensemble: pink hooded sweatsuits (the first time I’ve gotten to purchase little pink things for my kids!), ears stuffed and sewn, hooves made like little mitts and sewn to the cuffs (but not all the way around, so the boys could pull their hands out if they wanted), and little corkscrew tails (I sewed a tube and then put a pipecleaner in it).
Here you can see Tiny Dancer’s tail.
My Old Man and I wore the pig noses for trick-or-treating,
because the boys refused.
Even though for a month they’ve asked me nearly every day
to let them wear their pig noses.
