Halloween Sewing Fun

This year my son came up with a costume idea that I was going to have to make!
He wanted to be Ike from Smash Brothers
I'm glad I have a husband who has some engineering skills because I had no idea how I was going to do this one!! He had the idea to make the tunic from a large T-shirt and how to make the "armor" work with just some material and a belt.

I had fun putting it together and working with my husband on it!
So here is the finished product

I love hats

One thing I have loved making is hats! They are easy, fast and make great gifts!

I had made a bear hat for my nephew when he was born and my sister requested another one since he has gotten just a little bigger now. (why do babies grow so fast????) 
I couldn't say no of course and made two cute hats for him!

He has a new bear hat and a mohawk hat too!! He is so punk rock!!!  
I used this awesome crochet pattern from ravelry and added my own touches with the ears and hawk.  
Isn't he the cutest????

Hats and Booties for some cuties

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted! I've been making lots of things! Most of the items I am making are gifts for other people so I have to wait to post a picture! Don't want to spoil any surprises!!!
My Cousin had twin baby girls and I had to make them some special things!!!
They of course need the cutest hats and I found a great pattern from The Dainty Daisy.  These hats are much cuter in person!!
And of course every girl needs a pair of booties to match!  These were made from a lovely pattern I purchased on Etsy from Two Girls Patterns

The babies were just born and are only 3 pounds right now! They have some growing to do before they can really enjoy their new things.
