This Halloween was a bit relaxing for me from a sewing perspective. My daughter WANTED to be a Ninja…not a princess…a NINJA. And Mr. E wanted to be a MINION! Well at least these were the costumes most often mentioned during the past 2 months of daily costume idea changes. So with no further ado…
Simplicity 1037: Balacava mask
Minion eye is an empty small sliced olives can that I removed both ends of the can (in retrospect did not have to do that). One side I painted with acrylic paints as the eye. The other side my husband made two 1 inch slits in the back for me to feed the 1″ black elastic through. I hot glued it all back together. The outside of the can was gold, so I painted it grey and then hot glued on 6 nuts around the edge.
Here is a picture of the Grand Slam tee that is under my daughter’s costume.
And the reversed side of the Double Trouble Hoodie for my son.
