My daughter, Hannah, was recently in a school musical called, "Bugz." Hannah was chosen to be a ladybug, which was good for me because out of all the costume choices, this one seemed pretty straightforward. The music teacher said to come up with something polka dotted, even if it was gluing dots to a red shirt. After some thought, I decided to sew a simple pillowcase dress out of some black dot fabric by Michael Miller. I was pleased with the results, and it ended up being something that she can wear throughout the summer, rather than a "costume" that we would just throw away.
My friend's little girl, Kayla, was also in the musical. She was a butterfly. Kayla's mom and I went searching for some cute butterfly fabric, and I made her a pillowcase dress too.
I think the girls made cute little bugs, if I do say so myself!
Of course, there's always a little brother that doesn't want to be left out. He says when he goes to school, he hopes they make him a "stinkbug." Lovely...
