With Halloween coming up I had to think quick for costume ideas. It was pretty last minute, especially because I try to make the costumes. As a crocheter I look up pieces that I could, well, crochet.. lol.
Since the new Star Wars movie is coming out I had the idea that I could go as Princess Leia, and my husband Dustin could be Han Solo. Then I thought we could dress the boys as Yoda and Chewy or Ewoks.
Since I only had my hair as part of the costume and couldn’t crochet anything really to be Leia, I didn’t think that would work. I also didn’t want my husband to shave his beard to be Han Solo so that wasn’t going to happen. I stuck with the Ewok idea though for our whole family and went on Pinterest to see if there were any patterns available.
Sure enough, one of the first pins was an Ewok scoodie (scarf/hoodie) pattern from tinypurrs.com. I was so excited! I had to have four of them finished in four days for our Trunk-or-Treat at church.
Could I do it? I wasn’t sure but I was ready to challenge myself. I set to work and there were times throughout the week that I was getting pain in my fingers and I was like “what the heck is going on?! Why are my fingers hurting?”. Then I realized it was because I was a mad woman crocheting up a storm!
Low and behold I was able to finish the Ewok scoodies.
It was totally worth it and we were able to wear them this past Saturday at our church’s Trunk-or-Treat. It was a blast!
There were a few people who asked about the Ewok scoodies and where they could buy them. I was kicking myself for not having business cards, but I thought LadyLion.co was kind of easy to remember.
With Halloween just days away I am now chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool and all shootin’ some b-ball…..just kidding. But seriously, I get to relax and not worry about making our costumes because I have already put in the work.
It’s so fun to see what everyone dresses up as for Halloween. What are you and your family dressing up as for Halloween this year?
