Yes, you read correctly. This is MDawg posting! I came up with an idea for a Halloween costume for my toddler that I thought would be perfect for him. I saw some costumes online to buy for way too much money. So I decided I could probably make one myself. So, that's what I did. Although each stitch was technically done by me, I had a lot of technical support from my expert mom. I still can't figure out how you girls have time to do all that you do! The only time I could sew was at night when the kids were asleep. And by the time they are asleep, I don't want to sew. I just want to go to bed! Maren, I think it's great that you are happy to make costumes for your kids every year. I told Scott next year if I get a crazy idea to make a Halloween costume to remind me that it stresses me out. I prefer to go the day after Halloween and buy cheaply made costumes for cheap. With that being said, this wild thing definitely did look quite cute (if I do say so myself)!
