woyww #131 (keep getting number wrong)

This week I have mostly been creating concert costumes for the boys.

Here are my materials:

I'm not really cheating.  This was on my 'workdesk' yesterday and some bits still are.  But this is what I did with them.

this is Smallest - he is supposed to be a Christmas Tree
I still have a hat to finish and maybe some popcorn strings!

This is Small and he is a Rock Star Snowman

I am stuck without my sewing kit, wool, Christmas decorations, anything, so this was quite challenge but a trip to the local thrifty shop was a good call.

Last week I was making a scarf for Smallest and a phone cover.

Ta  daaaaa
My phone cover is finished and in use.  Not perfect but it will do till Santa brings me a proper one.  The scarf - I think it's long enough.  Smallest is not too tall so it may not need anymore but then again there isn't much wool left so perhaps I'll finish it off.

I wonder what everyone else is up to today.  Have a look here.

It all looks like fun but I couldn't see photos of costumes. I am having a busy day sorting my Christmas cards and loading a few new brooches into our blog shop too. x Jo

I couldn't see the photos of the boys either but the first pic showed all the materials, so we can imagine!!

Oh how lovely are they! I havent got to make anything for my two this year (bit of a relief actually!) but I do so love making costumes.

Great job with only a few supplies, the kids look so cute! Love the bling shot too before the decs went on the tree! No WOYWW for me this week but I did link you up! Too busy with Christmas prep, getting the Crimbo cards in the post, busy at work right now too and no crafting going on. Maybe I'll try and get back in to it at the weekend, but I've really been enjoying relaxing in the evenings and reading a book for the first time in ages!



Wonderful costumes and love all of the blue decorations! My favorite color is blue!
