This was year 5 of making costumes for my best friend’s daughters. The first couple of years we got to decide what they were going to be, but it’s been fun for these last three years to see what they’re passionate about dressing up as for Halloween. Check out Year 1 Garden Gnomes here, Year 2 Superheros here, Year 3 Anna and Elsa here , Year 4 Snoopy & Woodstock here, and the roundup post here.
I’ve had a very small piece, about 1 yard, of this red and grey checked fabric left over from a previous project for a couple of years. I wasn’t sure if I was going to find something to make with it, until I saw this poncho pattern in my stash last week.
