I'm so excited to show off Bella's costume! She's going to be a fairy! I bought her some $1 butterfly wings at the Dollar Store and I made her a tutu. She'll wear a onesie underneath. I already tried it on her and it looks soooo cute! I need to figure out a way to make the bands that hold the wings on her smaller though. The wings are fine, it's just how they are worn that's too big. I think I spent less than $5 total on the costume.

I can't wait to make her some more tutus. It was so easy and didn't take long at all. I think the hardest part was cutting the tulle in half semi-evenly. Cutting the strips was easy after that. I'll probably wait to make more until she's a bit older though and will have fun dressing up.

As for the boys, they have no idea what they want to be. Everything was $50 and involved a mask that I know they won't keep on. I did throw out the idea of making them both Legos this year and that seemed to go over well and will be super cheap so I may have to get busy!

You'll have to show me how to make the tutus. I have one that I bought for Katie at BRU a few months ago, but it's a size 12 months and I think she'll outgrow it soon.

She'll be just so cute. But she would be cute in anything too!
