Caitrin's Costume

Fabric remnants for Caitrin's costume.
 I was sitting outside yesterday enjoying the last day of our warm weather, reminiscing about trick-or-treats gone by. I was thinking about all the Halloween costumes I've made over the years. For Elizabeth I've made a puppy, a bunny and Dorothy; for Auston I've made blue Power Ranger and Charmander (that was awesome); and for Mikaela I've made a lamb and Winnie the Pooh to name a few. Then I started thinking about the costumes I've made for Caitrin -- a few princesses, a rock star ...

The skirt.


Oh no, trick-or-treating is this Saturday!! And I hadn't even started on her costume.

I don't know how I pulled it off, but I sewed my fingers off last night and voila!

Caitrin's witch costume.
She picked out all the remnants and the pattern. I love it when I can find great remnants. It's like digging for treasure! I'm not really crazy about the silver, but she insisted.

She woke up this morning to find it all finished and she said it looks awesome! She didn't have time to try it on yet, but I will definitely be posting pictures of her with in on after trick-or-treating.

Now on to make Kaden's costume. I'm going to take that lamb costume pattern that I used for Mikaela and turn it into "Saun the Seep" (Shaun the Sheep). He's so excited. I'll be posting pictures of him too.


  1. So cute! I bet she will look adorable!

  2. I love Sean the Sheep. Can't wait to see that picture. I made a Jedi tunic for my little guy this year. Caitrin's costume looks great.

  3. What lucky children to have such an awesome mom. Great job!

  4. Such fun, Kelly. I'm thinkin' that you may probably get to be havin' this much fun every halloween, b/c by the time you're done making costumes for l'il Kaden, you'll probably have grandchildren to make for. hee hee

  5. I think I mentioned already this costume is awesome, lucky children you have. Please post pics of the "lamb"....(smile)♥

  6. You are such a super mom! Great job!
