Charlotte's costume is DONE! And I had three whole days to spare! Not too shabby. I imagine one of these years I'll be at the sewing machine at 10pm the night before Halloween ...
The cape is made from Kona cotton in Tomato Red using a McCall's pattern, and that sweet little dress is made using fabric designed by Tasha Noel of A Little Sweetness. Isn't it adorable!? She teamed up with Leila and Ben to create a dress kit using her fabrics and their patterns. It was super simple to sew and fits Charlotte perfectly.
I picked up this basket at World Market for under $5. I already had the red polkadot fabric in my stash, and the ribbon was leftover from the ties on the hooded cloak. This no-sew basket liner was fast and easy to make. I just cut out a large oval of fabric, loosely arranged it in the basket, glued around the lip of the basket with a hot glue gun, then glued on a strip of ribbon to hide the edges.
P.S. Madison is going to be a witch. Her costume is black and orange and sparkly. No, I didn't make it! Pics to come later.
