My solution is going to have to be quick posts with lots of photos and to start my posting for 2015 I thought I would treat you to a few more costumes!
First up we have two very suspicious characters that look up to no good. Simple paper eye masks with black beanie crochet caps and stripy tops - robber costumes ready just in time for a party :-)
Sam was very keen to dress up as a pumpkin for Halloween last year so after a bit of panicking finally came up with the idea of a drawstring bag type arrangement with a hole for his legs to come out the bottom. We stuffed it with bubblewrap and balloons and he loved it (though did have a little difficulty getting through doors!
For the school play this year we had to dress Sam in a Christmas jumper and Santa hat, so I decided I wanted to make his light up. Rich helped me out with the circuit diagram to do this and then I sewed it all with exciting conductive thread and then added a crochet Christmas tree patch over the top.
Sam really loved it.
Last costume is for World Book Day tomorrow - Sam has been reading the "Faraway Tree" series by Enid Blyton and adores them - so here he is as the Faraway tree itself.
