Halloween has been over for a while now and most of the candy is gone. However, my last post promised some photos of our pumpkins and the girls' costumes, so here you are!
2012 was the year of the dinosaur in our home, so all our pumpkins were dinosaur-themed.
Sophia drew a Parasaurolophus and her dad carved it out for her:
He also made a Stegosaurus pumpkin:
I used Sophia's realistic T-Rex toy as a model for my pumpkin:
And I carved Ellie a T-Rex footprint on her tiny pumpkin:
Eleanor was dressed as a crow. She was incredibly hard to photograph, but this picture captures the fleecy black feathers she wore. She kept flapping her arms and making a "whoosh, whoosh" sound.
We missed the worst of the downpour by going out relatively late at 6:30pm. Sophia was dressed as Perry Parasaurolophus from the tv show Dinosaur Train.
Note the bony crest created from an old bike fender covered in fleece. I used the dinosaur tails tutorial by Jessica of Running with Scissors to create the tail and modified it to match the wavy and spotted pattern on Perry Parasaurolophus. I love how it turned out and think every kid should have a dinosaur tail!
My little dinosaur was thrilled with her costume!
Now that Halloween sewing is over, I can get back to some quilting! I've got a Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild sew-in on Friday and I can't wait to spend some time sewing with my friends!
