Halloween and Costume Contests

Happy Monday everyone! Since Halloween is right around the corner I thought I show you what were were last year. For whatever reason I was extra ambitious and decided that making three bears costumes would be fun. I found the fuzzy bear fabric, had to go to three stores to find enough to make for all of us! I found this pattern for Baby Fox and this pattern for us at Joann's and they were on sale, score for me!

Laying out the pattern on the fabric


All the pieces for Baby Fox's Costume
 

Working during Baby Fox's naps and on weekends, 1.5 months later I got this:



I had never sewn an outfit together, so if I can do it, you can do it! I did have to call my mom a few times for help with the directions, but I probably could have found them on youtube or the internet if I didn't have her to call.

On another note, I'm so excited, I entered this fantastic girls costume contest and we're in this weeks top three pick! Yay for us! But if we want to be in the running for the grand price we have to win favorite costume this week! So head on over to Brie's neck of the woods and comment that you like the three bears the best...


Because you know, how can you say no to three cute bears plus a husband that is willing to dress up in a bear costume for his wife.

Hope you had a great weekend! My weekend recap will be tomorrow! We had a fantastic family weekend. Hope you did too!
