Lou's costume is done and it was made completely from my stash of fabric and scrap box. Most is made with fleece or felt so there was little hemming or finished edges to worry about. That makes for some easy sewing!
The blue belt was made from a scrap of fabric my Grandma gave me that was cut off a skirt when she had it shortened.
The blouse (and I hope that this is the only time I am required to sew my son a puffy sleeve blouse) was brought over by a friend just days before. She asked, "Is there anything you could do with this funny striped fabric?"
