Since the beginning of October, my head has been filled with ideas of what Abby could be for Halloween-- she's only 19 mos. and doesn't have much of a say this year. I wanted to make her something since store bought costumes can be pricey for one night of use.... And because, she isn't going to be out trick or treating with her big brother... well, maybe just a few houses. Nonetheless, she still needed a costume : )
After much thinking, I decided that Little Sis would be Minnie Mouse! Since I do not sew... and Halloween is a few short days away, I needed something easy and quick; I turned to a no-fail... I'd make her a Minnie Mouse tutu.
I don't have a tutorial for the tutu itself. There are a great many blogs that have tutorials for that... or I am sure there are videos on You Tube, too. But, for the tutu itself, you'll need:
sewing machine/ needle thread (to sew the elastic together)
To complete the Minnie look you'll need Minnie ears (from Party City), black shirt, black leggings, and yellow shoes!
For the yellow shoes, I purchased a pair of white fabric shoes from Hobby Lobby (of course!) and painted them with yellow tulip fabric paint.
The real Minnie Mouse has some competition this year!
Are your kiddos costumes all made and./or bought for Halloween?! It's just a few short days away!
