My husband's family came to stay this last week and we had a wonderful time. Not only did we have fun laughing and playing, but I also got sit down with my sister-in-law and sew. She is also a big lover of Halloween and so for the third year in the row we sat down and made costumes together. Yes, I know it is July, but I start my Halloween prep quite early in this house. :) His sister, Audrey, is due to have a baby boy this September (on my birthday!!!!) and so we got to create a costume that would keep him warm and swaddled as a month old babe.
Audrey thought that a caterpillar costume would be fun and we both thought a version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar would be adorable. By using a 0-3 month old pajama outfit and some bright colored flannel, our little costume came to life. I love designing costumes and I can't wait to see our little nephew in it!
