Happy Halloween from Thing 1 and Thing 2


Happy Halloween!!

I had so much fun getting my kiddos ready for Halloween this year and think that their little costumes are perfect for them!! I decided to go with Thing 1 and Thing 2 from The Cat in the Hat.


 The best part is - that I made their costumes all by myself (my mom did give me some really great guidance!) and I am so proud of them! They were really quite easy once I got the hang of it and only took me a couple hours. I used the Simplicity pattern 5874. It was really easy to follow along! 


I changed the pattern a little bit by adding the zipper to the back of the jammies instead of having it in the front - but I somehow managed to turn this messed up pile of red fleece....


...Into these!!



I used my Silhouette and cut out the circle with white flocked heat transfer and then cut out the wording using black heat transfer - then simply ironed it on! Then I picked up some blue hair paint and we were good to go!


I made them just a little bit big so they could wear them over their clothing - I love these costumes because they will keep my little trick-or-treaters super warm! I am totally biased but I think I have the cutest trick or treaters in the whole wide world!


What are your kids, grandkids, or you dressing up as this year?
And be safe out there tonight!

What cuties!! Love those little kids! I'm impressed that you made the costume 'sleepers' or whatever they should be called.
