a change in plans

So the 50's theme is in the scrap pile (literally). My mother-in-law sent up a cape she made for a Superman costume for the boy. He was not all that impressed...the store bought costume that came in the box from grandma was much more appealing...go figure a four year old. Morgan, on the other hand, fell in love with it. She was trying to convince me that a bright red cape would go well with the pink flowers I was diligently hand sewing on the circle skirt. With one flower down and 3 to go (each was taking about an hour to stitch) I thought we might be able to rethink this costume. We pulled the pins and the stitches out of the flowers. Then my precious little red head said "how about little red riding hood"? Genius. Actually, she is going as little red riding cape. She's thrilled to pieces. Thanks for the start Grandma Vicki! I had enough time left over to make my first bag. A little rough around the edges, but I think I could get the hang of this! Hope you all are having a great weekend!

I am sooo impressed - both with the costume idea and the bag. I can't believe you made that. It looks so complicated.

what a great bag! I love the fabrics you chose. And little red riding cape sounds like a perfect dress-up for your Morgan.

Great job.
I'm so happy to welcome another sewer into the family.
Will LOVES going to the fabric store...... okay, actually just say the words "fabric store" and watch his body go into convulsions!
