Being Anna

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, if you didn't know this I'm a push over when it comes to my little Carter. We were in the fabric store and she spied a pattern for the dresses of Anna and Elsa from the movie Frozen! She said, "Please, please, please Shesho (that's what she calls me)! Would you make this for me for Halloween?" She wanted to be Anna because she said 'everyone' was Elsa! Well, of course I said yes and went to work on it. She came over one day last week to see if it fit.
 Here is the dress and I tried to get a few snaps. She was so excited and would not stand still. It did turn out cute and it fit her to a tee! I made it a little shorter than it was supposed to be because I didn't want her to trip up. Aren't the little appliques cute? I bought fat quarters for the colors of the shapes. I also did the neck of the bodice my way. It was supposed to have a little light blue insert trimmed with the gold ribbon. Well, I fiddled and fiddled with it and it just looked wrong so I cut another bodice and just made it plain. Shh...don't tell anyone.
 Then the cape! Again she was reelin' and just a spinnin'. She loved her costume to say the least. The cape was made from 72" felt and I thought this won't last long! But it hangs so nicely. Oh, well. The pompom trim just makes it. Sorry I didn't take a picture of the pattern but we also picked up a pattern for the same costume for the American Gril Doll. I thought I would get it made for her doll before Halloween but it's not going to happen. I've come down with a bug and just don't feel that well.
Then today, Carter's school had their Halloween parade and I wasn't able to go! ;(  But Mr. Precious went and took a few snaps of Carter marching proudly in her costume. I had to leave you with a little blur! :) 

I want to wish everyone a safe and fun Halloween.
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Frogs and monkeys walking by,
