Pumpkin Romper

I saw the cutest pumpkin romper on Etsy, but it was $75. That's a new pair of heels that I can wear to work every day. So, feeling ambitious, I tried to recreate it myself for a much more conservative price of $20. I think it turned out pretty awesome. Maybe not as awesome as James' Larry Byrd costume, but pretty awesome.

The best part was running to the fabric store at the last minute after I had broken the needle on my sewing machine. I was explaining to the cashier about how I was working on a halloween costume and sewed right over a pin and broke the needle. When she asked what the costume was, I wasn't quite sure how to describe it, so I said it was a pumpkin romper. Her and about four other ladies around me start gushing, "Awww, how old is the baby?" I probably should have just made something up, but instead I was like, "Actually, it's for me." Everyone pretty much looked at me like a huge weirdo. I couldn't get out of there fast enough! Either way, I think it turned out cute.


I love my sunny little nook in our office for doing all of my sewing.

New Wrist Warmers for Emily

Made the cutest warm fuzzy fingerless mittens/wrist warmers for my sister. I kind of don't want to give them away! Soooo happy with how they turned out. Happy Birthday Em!
