Tonight as I was scrolling through my Instagram feed I followed a hashtag to #upstatefabric and saw a blast from the past. Upstate Vintage & Threads had a fabric panel that was the same one I used to make a Halloween costume for Leigh in 1987. She was almost 10 months old then and I found this adorable Trick-or-Treat bag panel and turned it into a costume for her. I've always made the kids costumes and this was an easy way to make a semi-homemade one.
I apologize in advance for the terrible cell phone photos, but I was just too lazy tonight to break out the big camera!
Here is a terrible cell phone photo of a Polaroid - yes I said Polaroid from 1987!!! Wow, have times changed! Back in 1987 we didn't even have cell phones! But look at my adorable babies! A Pirate and a Pumpkin!
I still have that little costume and we dress up a teddy bear in it each year.
The hat is my favorite part. I made it out of felt leaves that were outlined in sharpie. It's adorable!
If you are looking for a costume for a little one, head on over to Upstate Vintage & Thread's Instagram to check out the panel she has up for sale.
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
