Fall FUN 2014 - Day 22 - MASKED
Last Fall, I asked the grandkids what they would like to be for Halloween and offered to make their costumes for them. Adellelyn wanted to be a black cat and Michael wanted to be Spiderman. Yes, I know you can buy those costumes at the store, but I always loved making costumes for Jana and Callie when they were growing up and love the look of handmade costumes. Adellelyn's was easy---tutu, gloves, leotard, ears, tail, etc. Without a pattern available for Michael's, it was a little more challenging. I adapted one to work for Spiderman and then discovered that he wanted to be completely MASKED---with a covered face. With him living 250 miles away, I had to guess on the sizing for something like that and the first try, I guessed wrong. So, it was back to the drawing board. I was able to come up with something that fit and MASKED his face as well and they loved them.
