Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I had high hopes of washing all my carpets for this week's Tackle it Tuesday but I had to keep my daughter home from school today so that's not happening.

Which is fine because now I have a much more exciting and fun project to tackle.

My daughter wants to be a fairy for Halloween. I've been looking for cute fairy costumes but I just can't stand the store bought selections. Cheesy!

So for this weeks tackle I plan to turn all of this......



Into a fairy costume.

Just call me Martha.....

and wish me luck!


I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!

I returned home from Joann Fabrics with the products pictured above at 1pm. It is now 2:55 and I'm ALREADY DONE!!! My daughter is tickled pink with the results and this was the easiest costume I've ever made. I did not have to stitch a single thing! I still have to trim the bottom as it's a little too long but all in all I'm very pleased!

Wow, good luck.

I was just on ebay looking up costumes and could not believe that people are willing to pay upwards of $100 for a fairy costume.

Very cute! You are too handy! I would NEVER even try to do that.

That is so sweet! I think I might rummage around the closet and find Sam's old dino costume for OWen this year. And Sam wants to be Napolean Dynamite but the costume cost $30 so that's out!

That is AWESOME! I'm not letting Princess see this . . . she'll want to be this, and after our costume shopping saga, she's going to be a pink unicorn, damn it!
