the cat and the fiddle
the cow jumped over the moon
the little dog laughed to see such sport
and the dish ran away with the spoon
As you can see, Ruthie makes a cute cow. I found this faux-suede cow fabric on clearance for $3/yard and snatched it up. The body of the costume is patterned after a pair of her fleece PJs and the hat is basically just my bonnet pattern in a 12-24 month size with some ears and horns thrown on it. It all came together in an evening. We had a fun, random little photo shoot for a friend of mine :) Good times! My little cow refused to smile until she snuck some gumdrops that were in the studio. Candy is a great motivator! Ha.
The first Halloween costume of the year is now complete. Next up is a Care Bear costume for Clara. Can you tell it's October?
