Halloween 2014 - Monarch Butterfly & The Butterfly Catcher!

 This is a little late posting, Peyton wanted to be a Monarch Butterfly for Halloween, so I made a costume that was fancy and still gave that whimsical "butterfly" effect. The pattern I used was actually for a fairy, but I thought it would make a perfect butterfly.  I took an ordinary mask and glued little butterflies on the one side, it gave it that mysterious look.  It turned out beautiful and she loved it, so that's all that mattered to me :)

 The butterfly catcher was pretty simple, I just made the pants and jacket from a pattern I already had, used khaki material and placed various bug appliques all over along with a name tag.  The hat I bought and added the butterflies.  He was the cutest butterfly catcher I ever saw and it was perfect in keeping with the theme of the butterfly :)

"100th School Day" Shirt

In celebration of Peyton's "100th School Day"....I wanted to make her something that would be special to wear and be proud of.  So she counted out 100 foam hearts and helped me glue them on the front....and Mommy went crazy fancy on the back....stenciled out of scrap material I sewed the 100 on and used fabric paint for the rest of the writing.  It came out beautiful and she was proud to have helped me make it :)
