Halloween - WIPs done!
I finished K's dress just in time, although I did the hem really sloppy and fast so I need to re-do it ahem, but we'll just ignore that tid bit for now.I did, indeed, free hand the embroidery. I found two different embroidery patterns for sale that I loved and I just couldn't choose between the two so I combined them together to make my own. K says it's her holding her basket in our back yard. I never did get around to posting info and pics of the finished cape on here, but I have notes on it here. I modified the pattern quite a bit.
I unfortunately don't have any good photos of her in her dress and cape, my camera was acting funny and then my computer crashed yet again so I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Once everything is back to normal we will try and get some better shots of Little Red and her wolf. I should add that K 'styled' her hair for these pics.
The seam is straight, I swear! She just had the hood kind of tilted
We pretty much had a Halloween weekend instead of just celebrating it on Sunday. Kevin had Friday off so we went pumpkin picking then (pics soon). Saturday the girls dressed up and we went to our local Whole Foods for their 'healthy trick or treating'. Their idea of healthy ended up just being organic candy but the girls didn't mind. We just put it all in the Halloween fairy bowl that night. Another local health food store was holding a festival of it's own and we stopped by to see the cutest little witch - Sparky the goat. The girls decided we will need at least 2 goats when we have our farm someday.
My little monkey had fun carrying around her pumpkin bag I made her, and everyone loved it.
We also carved our pumpkin Saturday. K requested a bat so Kevin carved this cute little guy:
He is still lighting up our table nightly, and putting a huge smile on all of our faces.
I hope you all had a fun Halloween!
