Hand Crafted

Growing up my mom always made our Halloween costumes.  I never had a store bought one.  It was so much fun designing the costume.  I remember drawing it out on paper and imagining it coming to life.  I loved going to the fabric store where stacks of fabric bolts were piled to the ceiling! It seemed like there were endless possibilities of fabrics to choose from.  My mom would sew and put things together until we  (my brother and I) had our very own hand crafted costumes.  One year I was She-ra and my brother was He-man.  Another year my brother was a ninja turtle.  My mom was so creative.  I will try and find some old photos to post if I can.
