My 1st Handmade Halloween Costume!

Hi there! Happy Halloween. I've been a total crafty mute lately, but I finally finished the Halloween Tutu that I made for my daughter - with hours to spare - and wanted to share it with you ;).

This was my 1st costume adventure, it's a No Sew Tutu. My friend/coworker Googled it & after making 5 of them for her daughter, convinced me that I need to give it a try. She taught me how, so I don't know what site she got the idea from, but if you can also Google it - she said it was easy to find.

I'll hopefully be back tomorrow with some photos of her actually in it. She's being a Monarch Butterfly, obviously. I got the wings at Joann Fabrics, they were $14.99 & I used a 40% off coupon. The tights were about $3.99 and a friend gave me the leotard. In the end, it cost me about the same as if I had bought a costume for her, but I'm sure no one will have a costume exactly like hers. My son is being a SWAT Team guy ;).

Thanks for peeking - have a Happy Halloween & be safe friends!
