Time for Halloween Costumes


A friend/coworker asked me to make a "candy corn" pillowcase dress similar to one she found on Pinterest.

Have you heard about Pinterest?  
If you are crafty or enjoy cooking, you should visit for a couple of hours...   
I understand it's addicting... so beware!


Courtney got the fabric and the ribbon and I made the candy corn costume yesterday.


One Halloween costume completed! 

My DIL called yesterday morning and evidently my youngest grandson wants to be a skeleton for Halloween... and the skeleton suit has to be one-piece like the space suit I made him a number of years ago.




One Halloween costume completed... one more to go!

  9. That candy-corn dress is adorable! Wonder if the little girl next door would like one....heck I want one but it would scare the trick-or-treaters....

  10. The dress is lovely, and she can still wear it after Halloween. I have looked at Pinterest but you're right, a couple of hours is gone before you know it, so I keep away.

  11. I LOVE this idea! I have two little granddaughters, and they would look adorable in them....hmmm...may have to dig into my stash for some white, yellow and orange!

    I was "invited" to join Pinterest, however, I have too many other online quilting addictions... Pretty soon I will just be looking at quilting rather than creating!

  13. The candy corn costume is adorable! You are so sweet to make costumes on request. I bet you will enjoy the one for your grandson. He will always remember that his grandmother made his costume.

  14. Cute costume. Fortunately, I got out of making a mermaid costume when my granddaughter found a nice ballerina outfit to wear. I had no idea what to do about that tail!
