Evie cycled through a lot of Halloween costume ideas and I wasn’t going to let her change her mind anymore. But when she said she wanted to be R2D2, how could I say no to that? Plus, her Elsa dress that we got isn’t really conducive to trick or treating in the Midwest. The high tomorrow is 43F, so the ability to layer under this hoodie will be necessary!
Josh and I originally had grand plans to paint a bike helmet for her costume, but this hoodie from the Disney Store was perfect. I got some white pants from Old Navy and decided it needed a little something extra. I know it’s not film accurate, but I made Evie a tutu to go with it. There’s a ton of different tutorials around, it’s crazy easy. I bought some spools of tulle and elastic and just knotted it. I ended up using three spools, but I probably could have made it shorter and I wouldn’t have needed so much. I cut each piece about 25 inches and folded them in half.
Mira’s C3PO costume is Star Wars Romper And Headpiece C-3Po, C-3PO Print, 1-2 Years*” target=”_blank”>from Amazon and it’s not bad for only being $14. It’s a little big on her so she can also wear lots of warmth underneath it. She walks around making robot beeps when she wears it, it’s pretty adorable.
Hope you all have a fantastic Halloween! What are your kids (or you) dressing up as this year?

I went to college in Milwaukee and whenever we go up to visit there’s a list of places we always stop, one of them is Broadway Paper. For my birthday weekend we went up to Milwaukee to see the Preservation Jazz Hall Band and of course stopped by Broadway Paper. I left empty handed, but I still took a lot of pictures, there’s just so much gorgeous stuff!
I love the walls of rainbow colored papers and envelopes.
There’s also tons of amazing printed papers.
I am a sucker for any and all Pantone products and Broadway paper had a great selection. They also have great books and other gifts.
But the coolest thing?
Check out this amazing paper dress! How incredible is this?
If you’re in Milwaukee, definitely stop by and check out the store. Otherwise you can shop online at www.broadwaypaper.com
All the way back in July I mentioned a secret project that I wasn’t able to talk about yet. Well, now I can finally reveal that I have a project in the December issue of the US edition of Mollie Makes! Unfortunately I just learned that the US edition won’t be printed anymore, but I was so excited to have my project included!
I made a felt embroidery hoop tea cup (which is kind of funny because my first ever magazine project was also a tea cup!)
Apparently Target sells the US edition of Mollie Makes, but I checked three near me and none of them had it. However Shawna from Scrawny Girl got a copy there and was awesome enough to send me photos before I got my own copy!
It’s been hard to keep quiet about this for so many months, so I’m really happy to finally be able to show this off!
