Costume Party

Every year, my brother, sister, and I take turns hosting a costume party. This year was my brother's turn (or should I say, my sister-in-law's turn!?).



I had picked up some yellow fuzzy fabric on clearance last year with some sort of costume in mind. (just not sure what type) So with the fact that I am 8 months pregnant, I decided to make the girls into ducklings and myself into an egg.



I had to come up with the patterns first, which was a little tricky to get the shape just right.





Here's the whole family.

Dan, who isn't much into costumes, is a farmer.


















I thought it might be easier to see the costumes if we were standing up, but my egg is sort of hidden.
















I had Sarah stand sideways so you could see the shaping of the duck costumes.














Emily wanted her costume off almost right away, so here she is riding the bouncy horse sans costume, with Sarah waiting for her turn.

Hi Becky,

Looks fun! Your little ducklings are pretty cute. :) And what a fun theme, too... you're just waiting to "hatch", aren't you?? :)

Amy :)
