Halloween, oh how we miss you!

AN & BN (and me too) are a little down today. It's Halloween and we are here reminiscing all the Halloween's we had celebrated so far and being here in India means, there is no Halloween. They should start as a matter of fact. Ah, well. Is it even normal for adults who spent their childhood without Halloween to miss Halloween? 

This is just random rambling.

But hey, I am working on a Beetroot costume for AN for the school science fair.

Does this make any sense?

Then she took it out...of the closet.

So when I left the US 3 months back, I brought along a couple of friends. 

The one in the front is the new Serger that I didn't unpack until a few weeks back. He is such a sport. Made this in his company.

And look at those seams.... 

I am surprised at the difference in finishing quality with Sergers. I've always thought I could pull it off with zig zag stitches, I still can do, but nothing like this. This is sooooo good. 

I've got a major project in hands now. A beetroot costume, that's right. My son's going to be a beetroot at the school science fair. Other kids are doing science projects and my son gets to greet a beetroot costume. Is that supposed to be an insult or a good thing? I don't know. But I am just glad that I have a dress-up project for him right around Halloween.

Can't wait to show you my ideas....I said ideas...not real projects :-)

Transformed. One down, 2 more.

Remember this from last post?

OK, now that's what I call...too plain.

I love circles, polka dots, pink. I had some some left over Kaufman I brought from the US and decided to use those. I just cut some circles out of the fabric, pinned them to the T-Shirt and zig-zag'd the edges 

Like this... 

and the result was this. 

I am pretty happy with the results and so is BN. She loved her T-shirt makeover. Well, we've got 2 more T-shirts to work on.
