I know this is super early, but I couldn't contain myself! I took advantage of a couple slow moving days and made Soren's costume this year. By made, I mean MADE. Bought the pattern, cut it and the fabric out (if you've ever cut out a pattern you know why it is italicized - yeesh!) and sewed and stuffed the sucker together. He wears it just about every day. Makes sure his claws always cover his toes!
He runs around saying 'Touch'a me tail?!!'. I have to say making this was an absolute joy - but watching him prance around in it is seriously the best!! It was so nice to be reunited with my sewing machine (the same one my Mother made our costumes with - no joke!). I can't wait to dig in on some potential projects for the holiday!. This is from a Simplicity Pattern - 1765.
