DIY Mommy

Monday, 8 October 2012

I have loads to do today still. All I've managed is a big grocery shop and a trip to the fabric store for Halloween costume fabrics.

I do think I deserve a treat for getting glow-in-the-dark vampire teeth (Monster size) and Bug cookies (mini rusks). Not to mention the hot cocoa I found which has omega-3 in it. let's just hope he'll drink it. I also got fabric to make frilly pink curtains for Bug's room.

I'm really looking forward to a sewing weekend! I need to hem the Monster's football jersey on Friday (practice is Sat) because right now it looks like a dress. Then over the weekend I'll be making a pumpkin hat for Bug (she has jack o' lantern footy pjs so all she needs is a hat with leaves, vine, and a stem) and a vampire cape and cummerbund for Monster.

Its a DIY Halloween this year. I have some awesome witch shoes (from the US) and a hat somewhere so I may show up at the party in those, black cords, and a black sweater. There just isn't the money for store bought sets this year.

But that's ok. For just a little while longer I get to play stay-at-home mom, so I'm gonna do it right!
