Last minute costume

My daughter had bought an Olaf the snowman costume for little JJ. It is a very cute costume but he doesn't like it at all, I think it limits his movement too much.  Since his sister will either be Elsa or Anna, JJ also needs to be a Frozen character.
She sent me this link and asked if I could sew this tunic.

Some online tutorials are good and some are not but I give this one a big thumbs up!
It had an easy to print free pattern and a list of exactly what to buy and where she bought it.


So yesterday, I spent $7.49 at Joann's and 80 minutes constructing this tunic from start to finish.

I also think this blogger, Neka at Thrive is genius! She and her 6 children made and modeled 100 costumes with mostly things in their wardrobes.


I must say that I don't like Halloween and I don't celebrate it  And    I'm not much of a Disney fan either.  I do help with costumes when asked by my children.
And I do pass out candy and compliments to children when they knock on our front door.  

And about the candy, I don't buy it early as we tend to eat it and then need to rebuy :)

  1. This costume is adorable. I hope he is more comfortable in this one and likes wearing it. Would love to see a picture from HAlloween with JJ wearing this.

  2. So, I don't understand. Where does the owl fabric come in? Is the gray costume on the hanger yours? I looked at all the links. All so cute. Thanks for the referrals.

    1. O wait, I see. The "owl fabric" is the table cloth. Sorry. Cute little costume!

    2. Hi Sharon, the costume is for my 1 year old grandson.
      and yes, the orange owl background is our tablecloth.
      thank you for the compliments

  4. Great tunic! I understand about the Halloween candy. A few year ago I decided to stop buying all those delicious tempting lovely treat size candy bars. I used to buy tons and give each kid 2 bars. Now I buy 3 big boxes of full size Hershey bars and give each child just one ( They all call us the "big candy bar house") Since they are big and I will notice, no one opens the boxes until Halloween night. I have a ton of trick or treaters and I believe I do save money since we are not eating and re-buying treats. Any leftovers go straight to the freezer and become s'mores on cold nights when we have a fire.
