Whew, that was a crazy month of sewing! I am so thankful for all the business I have had this month at HumbleLuna. 20% of my October sales will be donated to Whatchagonnado.org to help families with a child who is battling cancer. Grateful for all the support, and grateful I can make a difference for the organization.
I made over 30 costumes this month for my Etsy shop and have finally finished Solomon's homemade superman costume and helped Sophie alter a costume she found to fit her just right. So glad she didn't need a costume from scratch this year, I don't think I could have pulled it off. It was a last minute rush to get her costume ready for the Harvest festival at her school Friday night.
Solomon chose to be superman several weeks ago and I hunted all over for a plain blue pair of long underwear and a pair of tiny red breifs to go over the top. Then he decided he wanted to be a dragon, than a spider dragon then a bat, then after I showed him his finished costume he said "Ok, Fine mom I will be superman." Not that I was pushing the superman thing, I would prefer to make a more original costume.....this is my passion after all. But after so much sewing I am just happy that they have costumes at all at this point.
Check out the gnome and the turtle from years past.
Right now I am thankful for a little time off from the sewing machine. I am hoping to get out and enjoy this beautiful autumn out in the woods at some point this weekend.
Hope you all have a pleasant Autumn weekend!
