I’m on top of things today, for once, an early morning blog post!!:) Woohoo!
I FINALLY made the boys their Halloween shirts last week, on Friday! *SIGH* I’m just not feeling the Halloween spirit this year. I don’t know why. But, anyway, I decided I wanted to do a sewing project and one that I could finish during naptime so T-shirts it was:) It took a little longer than naptime, but only because I decided to make Jonas’ a little harder than it needed to be.
Brynnan wanted a pumpkin face. “A normal pumpkin face” is what he asked for specifically:) So, that’s what I gave him:
A bright orange shirt with black pumpkin features. He LOVED it!! His was the easiest to make. (Don’t you love this picture? It’s so Brynnan I just couldn’t resist showing it off:) He’s my fun loving kid and it’s wonderful!)
He’s so full of spunk, don’t you just love it?!
I didn’t get one normal smile from this kid, but these pictures are just as great. They show me who he is. And that he loves his Halloween shirt:) I bought his a size too big since I was making it so late and he’d only get to wear it once. I hope he doesn’t grow too much in the next year!!
My big 8 year old! I decided to do bats because I thought it would be easy, well, ok not easy, but I thought it would be easier than other things. I should’ve just done a ghost! lol
Jonas’ favorite color is purple so I was browsing the shapes on Silhouette’s online store and found a bunch of cute bat shapes. I remembered that I got a free bat shape at the beginning of the month so I decided to just use that. I copied it from Silhouette and pasted it in a new document in Photoshop, then printed it out and cut out the shape to use as my template. I found an old dark purple shirt of mine that I save just for this purpose and cut out a small section. I cut out the shapes and ironed on some Heat ‘n Bond stuff so they would stay put exactly where I wanted them to. I did a close zigzag stitch around both bats. It took soooo long! I’m glad I used the shape I did because the other ones I was looking at buying online had a LOT more detail!! YIKES!
Such cute boys! And I’m happy with how their shirts turned out. Even though Jonas’ was the hardest I think his is my favorite:)
I had some left over black material with the Heat ‘n Bond on it still so I mad a little pumpkin face on the bottom right of the back of Brynnan’s shirt. I thought it added a little fun touch. I didn’t feel like sewing it on so we’ll see how long the Heat ‘n Bond can keep it holding onto the shirt:)
Thought this picture was funny!:)
There you have it, my last Halloween craft for this year 🙂 I’m happy and sad at the same time. There’s always next year, right?
