Antrim, Co Antri...






I made two out of three of my granddaughters halloween outfits. Ana went in a onesie her mum bought her as a panda. Andie is a little tomboy so she wanted to go as a pirate. My daughter asked for a clown outfit for her lily. Lilys onesie is from an old burda 01/2004 and andies waistcoat and trousers are out of this months burda 11/2013. I made andies belt as wll out of a scrap of leather and an old belt buckle. I was very happy with these and thought they looked adorable. I hav’nt made a hat or pom poms since kelsey was small but armed with a glue gun cardboard and wool i got stuck in lol x

    You really had a lot of sewing for Halloween! it’s so touching and memorable to get such nice costumes from a dear granny! All the images are different and all of the girls are very pretty:-) I guess you had as many fun while sewing as they (or their mums !!!) while wearing:-)

      Thanks ellen, i met my daughter after work yesterday with lily’s hat, i changed the ribbon tie to a band so it stayed on better. As soon as lily saw me the arms where out for a cuddle, andie and ana are the same. It’s lively x
