    This Halloween my 3 1/2 year old daughter Maya wished to be Tinkerbell.
    Instead of running to the Disney store to purchase one, I decided to make
    one instead. Although I handmake many things, this was my first handmade costume. The best tool that I have is my hands. I did not use a sewing machine, which means no extra electricity used.
    Instead I handsewed the dress as well as the accessories such as her wings
    and shoes. I did not use any glue or adhesive, other than for her wand which was wrapped in green paper tape.
    The total amount spent was $4.50 for one yard of iredescent fabric for her wings. Other than that, everything was found items from our home.
    Heavy gauge wire for the wings found in the garage, old blouse and leftover fabric for her dress, Maya’s 1 year old brother Jaxon’s old pants, found rope for the pom pom for her shoes, Maya’s paintbrush for her wand, leftover rug pad for the wings, and good oldfashioned Sharpie in gold for her shoes.
    I had great fun!
    Happy Halloween!
