First Halloween For My Little Pumpkin Eloise!

  Who knew that Halloween could be so magical (in it's own way) just
like Christmas??

This year I channelled my High School sewing teacher, Ms. Kopitzki, to make my little grand daughter a Halloween costume.  Ms. Kopitzki taught me how to 
alter patterns, sew darts, put in a lining, stay stitch, slip stitch, put in a zipper,
and many more sewing skills.
I definitely called on those skills
(30 years ago...THIRTY YEARS!  WHAT???)
as I sewed Ellee's Snow White costume.

It turned out looking mighty adorable and fit her like a glove.
If Halloween had been even one day later, it wouldn't have fit her.
Take a look at the most fun I've had since she was born...

 Erika dressed as the wicked witch to match 
sweet little El.
(Notice the piping on the front in the top photo compared to the one below?? 
It got a little wet with Eloise's "teething drool" and came loose!  I KNEW
I should have tacked it down with a needle and thread!)

If you look really closely, you can see that Eloise's daddy was 
dressed as Uncle Sam which had nothing to do with Snow White.
I wish I had thought of making Tyler a dwarf costume but...I didn't.

Peeking over Grami's shoulder!
Look at those cheeks!

This girl KNOWS how to wear a hat!!

AND, how to carve a pumpkin!

We definitely had a wonderful Halloween
around my house.

Just don't ask me about the nasty 
looking mummy wrapped wieners!

You did such a great job on that costume. Eloise is soooo stinking adorable, I cannot get enough of her hair. I'm glad you had a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
