One Down, One to Go

The boy asked to be a rocket ship and I think I pulled it off. This came out so much better than I expected. The silvery fabric was pretty tough to work with, much like oil cloth but my usual tricks didn't work. Still puckered. Oh well...

I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the hat I made to go with it. I used my friend Roselee, aka Jane of All Trades' cute party hat tutorial.

Now off to work on the elephant princess costume. The girl gets points for originality.

How are your costumes coming?


  1. LOVE it!! Great job. I totally planned to make my kids' costumes this year, but getting ready for baby no. 3's arrival is definitely taking up all energy.

  2. Ooh, isn't the elephant princess from a Sesame Street skit with Natalie Portman? Awesome! By the way, I LOVE the rocket ship. That is the coolest thing ever.

  3. Wow! This is awesome! by the way, I love your blog and wanted to say bravo! for all your creativity and style :)
