The first Halloween costume is done! It seems early but the kids need costumes for Monday night already. The Boy picked a penguin costume, he seems to gravitate towards all things penguin. I used Simplicity pattern #0524. It went together quite nicely but the pattern runs small. It is made with fleece which is so easy to sew and cut out. It will also be warm, a plus since it wouldn't be unheard of for us to have snow on Oct. 31.
