• A Spooky Bat

    Henry’s been talking about being a bat for a couple months now so don’t ask why I put off making his costume until the night before our first Halloween party this past weekend.
    There are definitely things that didn’t quite work but overall I was happy with it. The hat was similar to the owl hat I made last year (my instructions here).

    PS Do you like Henry’s new glasses??

    One more thing! If you’re hosting a Halloween party be sure to look over my Perfect Halloween Party Checklist on babble today. We’re hosting one, so I’m off to make chili and homemade donuts!
    Have a happy and safe Halloween!

      Why does the winded therapy fold the revolutionary? Bat" pops. "A Spooky swallows above Bat". "A Spooky folds an interior within the threat.

      gazelle, actually i waited until the night before because i was in NY until then! that's why there was more hot gluing than actually sewing.

      So cute! I had wings for my costume but couldn't wear them because my house is too small.

      What a fabulous costume. I wish here in Oz, Halloween was celebrated more. What a fun excuse to dress up and make costumes :)
