For my daughters first Halloween, we made our costumes with iron-on designs. I found designs and words and printed them on iron paper, then ironed them onto our shirts and her little onesie. Mommy and Daddy were Zombie hunters (because we were newly obsessed with The Walking Dead) and my 2.5 month old baby was a “Zombie hunter in Training”. No sewing involved, just some ironing.
For her second Halloween, last year, I purchased a used pumpkin costume with leggings from a yard-sale site on Facebook. It was super thick and lined and HOT. It was like 90 degrees when we went trick-or-treating and it was MISERABLE to say the least. She sure was the cutest pumpkin I have EVER seen, but I am not liking the lined costumes. Florida should have their own line of warm-weather friendly costumes!
This year she is big enough to want to pick out a costume, but still young enough that she doesn’t really understand and I can choose for her. Now, my dilemma is….do I buy a costume and take the easy route? Or, should I finally open up that sewing machine I got for Christmas a few years ago and re-learn how to use it? I haven’t used a sewing machine since middle school. Do I have enough time? Will I be able to do it? How long does it take to re-learn? Will I get it done in time or will I be rushing out to find anything I can so that she can participate?
What are my choices to dress up a 2 year old girl? I could try and make her a princess…but that sounds like a lot of detail for someone who still has an un-opened sewing machine, hehe. I could make her a Minnie Mouse costume and do a lot of iron on’s and glue with minimal sewing? I could make her Princess Sophia from the Disney channel? Everything sounds so difficult for this not-so-crafty momma.
I guess I better start researching and start on a project shouldn’t I?
