This year with all the sickness going around (H1N1, stomach virus, runny noses, you name it) I decided to make my dd costumes with stuff that I just had laying around the house.
I did not go to the store to purchase one item used! Well ok I give I did buy them at one time, but none were bought with this thing in mind...does that still count?
I used nylons and wire hangers to make the wings. Some paint and rhinestones that are for scrapbooking for embellishments. The mauve flower was made using a tutorial I posted earlier today.
Both tutus were made previously, the mauve one was for infant pictures this summer, and the white and pick was fixed up from a couple years ago.
The brown kufi hat I crocheted a couple weeks ago, not for the butterfly costume, but I think it works great.
And the korker bow was given to us in a bow exchange.
Finally these have turned out to be the most expensive costumes I will ever (hopefully make) the reason...
My daughter tipped the iron (that was turned off, but is so dang smart that it turns on by itself) onto the carpet and melted a nice imprint into it. Lovely I don't know how I will fix that one. Any suggestions?
