Since I’m forgetful awesome, I’m apart of two blog series today. I signed up for both pretty far apart without realizing I signed up for the day. It actually works out perfectly because it’s all part of the kids’ Halloween costumes! This year we are being characters from Toy Story, and this is the only picture I got of both of them facing the camera.
Let me tell you a little more about Bullseye and the book Fun of the Fair. It’s a book filled with adorable soft toy sewing patterns. They are SO cute! I have almost zero experience when it comes to sewing toys or softies so I didn’t know what to expect when I started. It was explained really well, so the only trouble I had was with the hand-sewing. But that is my inexperience and had nothing to do with the book! I’m really excited to make some other stuffed animals for Christmas gifts this year. I think any beginner could make these toys, so don’t miss the other great sewing books!
Now let’s talk about the costumes and the pattern hacks. We found the Buzz Lightyear wings for $1 this summer at a yardsale. Sorry, I don’t have a hack for making that! I used the Billy Bright Eyes Tee pattern for the top and added the sleeve details. I drafted a hood and attached it to the neckline. For the pants I used the free Retro Sweatpants pattern and took out width in the legs and then added the leg details. I did the cuffs in the colors that closely matched Buzz’s colors.
