Halloween Costumes complete!

Happy Halloween!
We had a Halloween party to attend tonight so I HAD to have Halloween prepared a whole week early (Thank goodness cause now I can enjoy the week without too much stress.)
We went for a family theme this year
Dr Suess

My Emo boy LOVES Cat and the Hat. Everyday he visits he plays mainly on the cat and the hat games and watches the movies. He and my sensitive one have been caught a few times talking in rhymes like the books! SO I had plans for a red and white hat for him.
Last week I came across a site that had Sam I Am as a costume to compliment the Cat in the Hat. I HAD TO COPY! (I never got to the sign or the hat but I have a week to finish that)
My sensitive one Loves his costume. Next time I will not use felt I will buy some thing that will last longer!
Live and learn. It may hold its shape really well but it stretches and pells really easily

When my flittering butterfly found out Emo and Sensitive were going with Dr Suess characters she wanted to also. I searched for something clever and Cindy Lou Who was all I could come up with. She pulls it off well.

Ape baby had to stick with the theme. I wanted to make her Gustav-the fish in the bowl but ended up with One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish in a fish bowl. This was the funnest yet most challenging costume to put together! I am definitely learning my limitations in the sewing department!

Here they are!
the Dr Suess group.
For next weekend I will have Thing 1 and Thing 2 costumes for me and my soldier boy just not enough time today to finish them today.
Have a fabulous week!
