When I was coming up you were either Purple Sunglasses California Raisin, Saxophone California Raisin or Lace Glove Madonna. I knew I would get side-eyed for putting my eight month old baby in a black trash bag (even with the requisite purple sunglasses and saxophone) and, unless Baby Hot Topic exists, the lace glove would be a challenge. Back at square one I knew I needed a costume that was safe, soft, warm and easy to take off. Grabbed some felt, fabric glue and scissors and whipped this up. Here is a slide show of how I did it:
Last night I took a needle and thread to the sides for extra strength. Something about sewing up a tiny Halloween costume felt like official Mom business. And I totally loved it.
So, Emmy, Happy first Halloween! And Happy Birthday to her Aunt Emily! She lucked out with this Halloween birthday an I lucked out with this hilarious and talented baby sister. Love you Emily Beth! And Happy Halloween to all of you!
