Halloween is a great time to show off your crafty sewing skills….and if you have kids, well, a handmade costume is a MUST!
I know, I know – I almost fell victim to the “soooo easy way out” when I saw the exact costume my daughter wanted in the store for $19.00. Sure – it’s cheap, but far from original. If you need a little encouraging, make sure you visit these links for FREE tutorials. I’ve found simple, complex and inbetween costumes that you can make for the price of materials (and a little time and love).
I’m sure you can find the hour or two you will need to make an original, one of a kind, compliment earning costume!

I’m sure you can figure out what it is….stay tuned for the full reveal!
Now get sewing….you still have a few weeks!!!!
