With two grandsons 5 & 2, I’m pretty culturally literate about Lighting & friends, Ryder & his four-footed buddies, and Jake & his little band of pirates. Last year for Halloween, grandson Tyler, wanted me to dress as Izzy as he was dressing as Jake. As my hair is short & gray, I needed a wig. I designed one with yarn sewn into a bandana. The idea could be adapted to other costume needs.
I haven’t dressed up in years for halloween but when my young nephews asked me to go trick-or-treating with them I had to deliver! I decided to go as one of my favorite things, a Lego brick!
I had it shipped to me and when it arrived I realized some assemble was required, which I love, so I happily put together my cage project! It was very easy and instructions were clear. If you have ever put together anything from Ikea then you can do this.
In 2014, I (Vicki) made 16 dresses for Dress a Girl that were distributed in Africa through a NYC church mission group. For 2015, I set a Lenten goal to make 40 dresses in 40 days. I reached my goal before the end of Lent!
Whether you sew for charity or for a special little girl in your life, these pillowcase-style dresses are a great way to express your creativity.
