my little monarch

10.27.2011



Thank goodness for pinterest and friends.  Seriously, I was about to make Natalie her 'sock' costume that she wanted to be and then I saw my friend Kristin (skirt as top) pin this awesomely cute butterfly.  A sock wouldn't have been so bad, I actually had some creative ideas for it, but I'm so glad the butterfly came along.  Don't worry, Natalie had a whole list of possible costumes and luckily, a butterfly was near the top!


The instructions were really great, just discovered I should have bought more colored felt so I could have decorated both sides instead of just the back.  Oh well, next lifetime...


Meanwhile my little butterfly is pretty darn happy wearing her wings.

  9. That's precious!! I bought a pair of butterfly wings a few years back in the US and no, I don't think that at 29 you're too old for butterfly wings ;-)

  11. Love the butterfly wings! I am busy making trick or treat drawstring nap-sacks for my six grandkids (even though the twins are not ready to use them at 13 weeks!). Maybe next year I'll make them costumes and this one looks like one to add to the list!
