My Little Cowboys

Had a slight attack of baby brain, totally forgot to show you my finished cowboy outfit. If you remember, I was on a mission last month as it was cowboy month in Colorado. They do lots of fun things at school, including a wonderful hoedown for eldest Oompa Loompa. So obviously I was on the hunt for the best cowboy outfit I could find. After hours of searching on the internet, I finally found quite a nice outfit. I put it into my cart, was just about to click pay-now when suddenly I woke up from my crazy-mummy-moment and realised that it cost over $100 - not including shipping. Err, hello.........So I decided to blow the dust off my sewing machine, head to Jo-Anne's and get sewing.

$19 later I ended up with this.............

2 hours of sewing later, I ended up with this............

The outfit on the right, (modeled by middle OL) I bought a couple of years ago. I used this as my 'rough template'.

Not only was I $90 richer but I was super proud of my 'Martha' moment. It felt really good to actually make something that worked and that eldest OL actually wanted to wear. So........loving my sewing machine, loving Jo-Anne's and loving those two cute little cowboys!!

  5. Ahhhh, cute they are Tara! Costumes are my favorite things to sew {except layouts of course} since they don't have to be perfect. So, whatcha gonna do with the $90.00 in savings? ;)
