Madison is going as Pebbles Flintstone this year. Just imagine her sweet red ponytail. I love it!
Anyhoo, I decided on Pebbles about a month ago. The original plan was to purchase her costume on Etsy. Sure, thirty bucks (plus shipping) sounded like a lot of dough, but I figured, "Can you really put a price on that much cuteness?" Well apparently you can, and that price must be a bit lower than $40, because I just couldn't make myself pull the trigger.
I kept putting it off, until Monday (t minus two days until Halloween!!!) rolled around and Madison STILL didn't have a costume. So that night I did what any
Not one to be deterred, I got to work as soon as I put the milk in the fridge. First, I used a yellow sharpie (because that's the first writing implement I found) to trace a slightly bigger version of this shirt onto the fleece. I made it bigger because I knew that I would need extra room for my seam. Turns out that people in the know call that a seam allowance.
As soon as Madison woke up Tuesday morning, I threw it on over her pajamas. It fit!
This is the most current picture I've got, it's about 80% complete here. I'll share the final reveal tomorrow! I don't want to risk ripping my amateur seams by putting it on her again unnecessarily.
