Wow! What a week of sewing. It's gonna take two posts to cover it all. First, of course, were the costumes. Josiah's was the first one. After a long debate between Spider man and Batman he settled on this:
Goldie has been talking about Word Girl, from PBS, since right after Halloween last year. Of course, I'm always a last minute girl and while we found $8 boots that would match the red outfit in her closet almost a month ago, I didn't get the rest of her clothes finished until about 11pm the night before she was to wear them.
Stuart was Goldie's sidekick, Captain Huggie Face (a monkey). His clothing all came from Goldie's stash. For the shirt, I just rolled up the sleeves. For the pants I cut down and added a tail.
To the hat I added an antenna and monkey ears. We were a little worried that he wouldn't care for it, but he ran around all weekend pointing at himself and saying Word Girl. I really think Huggie Face was just too many words for his little mind to say or understand. He got mad a me every time I tried to take off his hat. All in all we had a great time with their costumes.
