My Little Red : :

I finished up Haila's Little Red Riding Hood costume last night, so we had to celebrate with a quick photo-shoot in the yard.

Boy was it difficult to choose what photos to share! I realize there are alot, sorry! And even more here, not to mention a hundred more I didn't share. I have to say, we are both pretty thrilled with this costume!

I made the hood out of a faux velvet material that was already lined with satin on the inside, that I picked up on super sale at the nearest Joann. I traced one of Haila's poncho sweaters for the shape, adding some addition length. For the dress, just a simple patchwork, full apron style dress with some Denise Schmidt and a few prints from Pink Castle Fabrics. I included a little Dresden detail to the bib, since I have a bit of an obsession with Dresden's at the moment. : )

Oh, does it feel good to cross this costume off my to-do list! And, many thanks to all my Facebook friends for giving the photo I shared last night so much love. It made my night!!!

I just entered this costume of ours in the fabric wearables category of Celebrate Color. Wish me luck!!!

I love how it came out and the little basket, and Haila fits the part so well, she is such a beautiful little girl.

Thank you all so much! Haila is quite thrilled with herself today, as she should be! She was a great model for me yesterday. :) She is wearing the cape right now, as she is eating her chili. LOL

My confidence to sew clothing is growing, thanks to all of you! I am hoping to make myself a new skirt next! :)

What an adorable little red riding hood! I love that last picture of her on her tricycle.

Tonni said...

There's something about all the photos that would make one want to post so many. I couldn't pick a favorite out of the bunch! What a GREAT costume!

I love your Little Red. Her photos made me smile. It is great to get costumes off the checklist, especially when they turn out! I made my girls' costumes early (for us) this year, they are wondering when in the world they are going to get to do trick or treating!

ElfRenee said...

Absolutely adorable!!!

Rachel Hauser said...

Gah, that's awesome! Such a pretty dress too. Way to go above and beyond. For some reason I have zero interest in making Halloween costumes. Bad mama.

p.s. congrats on being on Noodlehead!

Karen said...

Jessica said...

Adorable costume! The bike photograph is really neat, too. ^.^

becoming claudine said...

Oh simply simply adorable!! She will be a great Red Riding Hood!!

sandyb said...

Oh my goodness, she is so sweet. Her costume is adorable. Good luck on the contest.

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

Sandy, this is from last year -- which is SO hard to believe! I feel like it was just yesterday. :(

I think I ended up getting second or third maybe? However, her reaction was far better than winning any contest. She loved this costume, slept in the cape a few times, and even wore the dress as an apron for months!
