Jessie the Cowgirl Costume

Ahh! Our trunk or treat is coming up on Friday and I JUST finished my daughter's costume. I hate when I procrastinate.

At least the kids' costumes are ALL done. Hallellujah.

Last week I shared my son's Woody costume. Well...surprise surprise, my daughter is going to be Jessie the Cowgirl! 

I didn't want the traditional outfit with jeans because I like my baby girls frilly. (And this picture really accentuates her unibrow!)

Alrighty, let me break it down, because that's what I do.

1. Her hat I bought from The Dollar Store. I used my scissors to cut holes and then white yarn to thread through those holes. 
2. I know it's hard to see through the tutu, but I bought some white tights and drew cow print on them. I just put a piece of cow print fabric in the middle of the tights as an outline.
3. For her shirt I bought the plain white button-up shirt from a thrift store. I then free-handed a design in felt and sewed it onto the shirt. Then I got red paint and made a design and shook some red glitter on top of the paint. Magical.
4. This may be my favorite part! She has a red braid attached to the back of her hat! It's almost too cute for words!


She's ready to charm the people for their candy!

  3. I love toy story and Jessie's song always makes me cry - in fact the best thing about having two "surprise" babies is I now get to watch all the pixar movies again :) This costume is just fantastic xo
