First, thank you so much for all the lovely blog birthday wishes. Keep them coming (if you feel so inclined) and I will make a draw for the little giveaway in my next post.
Back to business. There is a golden rule of parenting that says you should never make open ended offers to children. Instead give just two or three options at most. Well I broke that rule when I asked Cee Cee what she would like to be for Halloween and she answered "A rainbow coloured superhero. And the rainbow has to sparkle...". Of course.
Where was I supposed to find rainbow fabric that sparkled at short notice? Just not possible unfortunately. But good old Spotlight came to the rescue with some rainbow cotton and for the sparkle we improvised with silver lamé applique on the back. I started to make my own version of a superhero cape and then, after getting stuck on how to do the neck part, Puking Pastilles (gotta love that name!) came to the rescue with her tutorial which I found via Google. The top part is just like an oversized bib turned around to the front.
And of course, we had to have a little matching cape for Cee Cee's beloved Souris (translation: souris = French for mouse):
