Costumes, More Freezer Paper Stenciling, An Upcycled- Upcycle project, And GIVEAWAY TIME!

I realize now that I'm posting this, apparently I've been busier lately than I thought!

Let's start with Halloween. I managed to get off pretty easy this year! My girls decided to be black cats, and though all they needed were ears and a tail, I ended up making their pants too.
And little man decided he wanted to be a puppy. I'm still not sure how I managed to get his outfit done in less than 24 hours! I used some knit I bought for 50cents a yard a while back to make the hoodie and pants. Then took some brown felt and sewed ears and spots all over.
I can't believe I didn't get a good picture of a single one of their tails! They were just tails, but they looked so cute!

Next... I did some more freezer paper stenciling. I made my hubby and myself both Texas Rangers shirts. So sad they didn't win it all, but it was a great season still! I must say though, I'm still shocked that we used to turn on Rangers games to fall asleep in this house! But ever since our girls started playing softball, we are glued to the games. The last 2 seasons we've hardly missed a game. Glad we started watching when we did! Was such an exciting season!
I also made myself a Glee shirt! :)
And for upcycling.... I took a shirt that I had upcycled last year and upcycled it so it could be used this year as well. Check out the original upcycle for it! I do like the deeper orange I used last year. This year's is more of a neon orange. But I had to use what I had! The orange in this one was also from an old Little Caesars work shirt. TJ wasn't so much in the mood for pics today though...
