Thing 1 and Thing 2

Oh, what to be for halloween? We have been tossing around just what to be. Course some of us are still going to go Goth, but after a suggestion from Uncle Byron and having had Cousins Walt and Di refer to the twins as Thing 1 and Thing 2..... I decided to create costumes.
We went to K-mart and picked up 2 pair red sweats and 2 red long sleeved shirts.  They didn't have two of the same unisex shirts, so I got a girls and a boy shirt.  The boy shirt is a bit bigger even though they are both marked 5T.
Came home and dug through the fabric bag.  Found some off-white material already folded in half!  Grabbed a small plate from the cupboard and the fabric markers.  Two perfect circles!
Used the trusty fabric marker to assign the Things! 
Placed them on the shirts adjusted and then pinned. 
Used Shantel's trusty sewing machine on the zig-zag stitch and went to town!
All ready for a try on!
Don't they look like they are up to something?  I will spray their hair blue for the big event!  For a few more shots of these two hamming it up click here!

WOW! Can't wait to see the final product w/ the blue hair! What did Robby ever decide on?

I may steal this idea...I'm desperate for something that isn't expensive. And we already have the sweats!!

How cute and yes --- blue hair would make the costumes PERFECT! Hope they have so much fun!

Take care and have a good weekend - Kellan
