I love to sew

It's no secret that I love to sew. I love making things with fabric, be it quilts, costumes, or decorations. A good friend of mine from college invited us to a Renaissance Christmas dinner. In costume. I know that makes us kind of geeky, but hey, being a geek is fun. Just ask the geeks. So a few weeks ago we went to the store and got fabric to make our costumes. I have spend countless hours cutting out and sewing together our costumes. Here is a glimpse of mine. I will post more as I get further along, as well as pictures of us when they all done.
 The loops for the lacing.
 The embroidered edge lacing.
The color and invite.

Do you like to do things like this? If you could be any character ever, who would you be? I would want to be Cinderella and wear the dress that is from the March 2015 movie. How beautiful is that!!

This year I was feeling kind of scroogey about decorating. I didn't want to make a mess only to have to clean it up again a few weeks later, so I didn't decorate. But I did make costumes. Halloween is much more fun with children. It gets kind of hard to keep putting forth effort. But the costume part was worth it this year.

Daniel already owned shiny pants, so we went with it. 
I already owned the red shoes (not seen). Winston already is Toto so then we just made a lion costume (cape) for Lacy. What do you think?
Here's a better view of Lacy's lion cape.

What did you dress up as? Do you like Halloween? Normally it's my favorite, but this year seems to require more energy. I will save it up for next year.
