Make Halloween costumes was on my list for this year.  

Jones has been reading the Big Bad Wolf and decided he should be that.  He really wanted Thea to be 3 little pigs but I couldn’t make that happen so I made her Little Red Riding Hood.  I found a pattern online for the big bad wolf and then when we went to buy fur jones it was $30/yard on sale!  I needed two yards so very quickly I decided I would not make his costume if the expense was that great and we ordered it online for $20.  For little red I did make her costume except for the dress which I had already in the closet.  I patterned the cape from one of her hoodies and made the apron using her overalls as a template.  The tutu was basically tulle tied onto elastic.   It was pretty easy to do.  

We went to several Halloween events including the Halloween parade where they were picked for a top costume and won free pizza.  They were a little sad when Halloween was over and Jones has already requested to be a ninja turtle for Christmas.  Lol. 
Both costumes have been now recycled into the dress up bin.
