Last year Little Miss Destruction was a delicious sushi. No sewing machine involved.
This year, "Emmo!" is everything. So why not wrap that muppet up in tulle?
I gave instructions on how to make a no-sew tutu right here. This time, I didn't get the tulle in spools, so I had to wrap it on a piece of cardboard to measure.
Of course I had help.
I highly recommend the spool - the cutting by the yard was kind of a pain. I also used a little headband rather than a elastic waistband this time. It was just easier.
(Warning! Warning! This part right here is called an "affiliate post", because if someone were to click and buy, Amazon would toss a few pennies at me by way of commision. Or at least it's supposed to work that way. I'm still kind of new at this but I do know that I'm required to disclaim).
I got a little shirt and softy pants. The best part is, you can use these as clothing once the holiday is over! Which is a huge benefit in my book. Pants and shirt also very easy to find on Amazon or wherever:
After the whole tutu thing, I hot glued a pompom, two cotton balls, and two buttons onto a red hat.
If I were to take the time to redo it (I won't), I would use white pompoms instead of cotton balls. They got white fuzzies kind of all over. Plus, the hot glue didn't stick quite as well to the cotton balls as it did to the pompom.
I also would have used a slightly larger hat:
All in all though, our Chief Content Provider and Head of Demolition is pretty happy with her costume. Except for that first moment when I told her that I would be taking her picture...
She got over it though.
Happy weekend and happy almost Halloween all!!
