These two cuties (Shiloh and her friend) decided to be Thing 1 and Thing 2 for Halloween on the bus last week Thursday. As luck would have it, we couldn’t get the costumes in time so I got out the sewing machine and puff paint and got to work.
For the record, I recommend buying the shirts if you have the time to wait for them in the mail. They’re only about $13 on Amazon.
Two positives of making the shirt:
1. I was excited to be able to get them long sleeves so they would be a little warmer when they were out and about Trick or Treating.
2. This could be a super fun parent/child project! 🙂
Happy Sewing… and Puff-Painting!

Creating the Circle
After I finished, the shirts I realized that sewing the circle’s edge before putting it on the shirt was unnecessary, I could have just left the edges without sewing as the puff paint covered it all. However, I wasn’t sure so I didn’t leave it to chance.
If you and your kids try this one I would drop this step.
Don’t forget to let it dry for a day. 🙂
