Halloween for the whole family


With Halloween just a few days away, I thought I'd share some great family themed costumes I found.  

I love seeing a whole family get into the holiday spirit, especially when the costumes are homemade!



A favorite of mine has to be the classic Flinstones.

.

A few years ago, my kids joined in on this fun idea being Pebbles & Bam-Bam.

Next we have EVEN MORE easy DIY costumes for families.


The football family.


Having a household of boys, this was a no brainer for us a few Halloween's ago!

Feature: Butterfly Dance



Where to start?

Butterfly Dance by Cinderberry Stitches for Riley Blake brings me right back to my childhood.

It's carefree and whimsical.  I feel like i'm running around chasing the butterflies in my backyard!


The bold soothing color combinations of the pinks and greens and blues mesh perfectly together, giving a sense of the grass, the sky and the butterflies dancing.


Come check out our selection of precuts in this darling collection.


Get swept away to your childhood and get your hands on Butterfly Dance, today.





Trick or Treat.


So, I usually get my kids those typical plastic pumpkins to go trick or treating, but let me tell ya, they are a pain to store!

This year I really wanted to just make them each their own bucket or bag.  So I went searching to find a good bag that I would be able to easily tuck away in a box after Halloween to be used for years to come!

Here is some of what I found!



 Trick or Treat Bag from The Mother Huddle

*wouldn't this be fun with this?



Sew Fishsticks has their spin on a treat bag.  I like how sturdy these look, but yet still easily stored!


These just may be my favorites.

Some fun with felt.  Check out these bags.


And last, but not least,
Some fun with stitches on these bags.


What's your vote? Which bag should I pick?
