I am such a mean mom. In the past years I have made my kids pick their Halloween costumes out of the dress up box. I asked my 10-year-old daughter what she was going to be for Halloween this year and she told me Darth Maul (the red face dude from Star Wars). I thought that there was no way I was going to dress like that this year. So in one of may many trips to Joanns fabric store, I found some cute fall fabric colors and wondered what I could make out of it. It came to me, she could be a cute scarecrow. I made the skirt for the most part it was pretty easy. I had her sweater in the closet and the ruffles were falling off and it was white. I decided I would tea dy It brown. I had something else in mind for her hat, I still might change it before Halloween, but I turned put ok. So now we have a cute scarecrow for our Halloween.
