It's Halloween.
Jessica got up early because she got to wear
her costume to school today.
She was very excited about that.
She was feeling very pretty today.
I hope to get more pictures of all the kids tonight.

She loved her shoes.

So this week I needed to finish the crinolines for the poodle skirts
Here I am gathering tulle.
I am using my gathering foot.
This is one of my favorite ways to gather,
especially if you have many miles of fabric to gather.
The finished product.
Now I did not get to fancy with these.
They may only wear them once.

I made four of these.

Perhaps next year I will tell them they can go to the store
and buy a costume.
Seems to me that would be much easier.
I will get some pictures when they are all dressed up
so we can see the total look.

Canvas running shoes

Halloween is coming.
I really dislike Halloween but I am outnumbered.
So I am working on costumes again this year.
Here is a part of it.
Canvas running shoes colored with a
jiffy marker and crystals added for some bling.
The kids think they are great.
