October has gone by so quickly! California is BARELY starting to get chilly and Halloween is already next week! A lot of you know that I closed my shop to work on costumes for my family. I decided that I wanted Appolina to be Totoro for halloween after I saw THIS (last year!!) So I franticly searched the web for a totoro costume because I wanted MY kid to look THAT CUTE! after finding nothing similar or in my price range I told myself and my husband for reassurance “I can do this” … and I did, by the way this is my very first sewing project.
Long story short, this took me 5 days (not entire days). I bought everything from Joannes Fabric store and spent $20 (with coupons and in-store sales) which was not too shabby because I am totally on a budget! I eyeballed everything and I asked questions. I ran into a lot of trouble with the sewing machine (first time remember?) so I read the manuel and I watched youtube “how-to” videos, I did not make the costume exactly like she did, I used what I had and I did what I knew. For a costume, I think I did a good job and I am very proud of myself .. I almost gave up ..twice. I found everything that I needed at youandmie.wordpress.com , she’s a seamstress wizard and has a gorgeous child! Im so happy she made this costume because if it wasn’t for her then apple would be something else ! Thank you “YOUANDMIE” !
