I have found a new blog that I love called, Sew Many Ways. Today she posted a "Thoughts on Thursday" about costumes that she made her children over the years. It got me thinking about some of my favorite designs. Ah sweet memories!
Sometime in the early 1980's, I made these homemade Care Bear costumes for my two cherubic boys, (and then made heads for Dad and I as well - he was Business Bear and I was Work Out Bear.) The only picture I could find was of Kevin ....(stay tuned for the story that comes later about Kevin.)
And then there was the year I made them astronaut costumes because I found a great price on ironing board fabric. I don't think they LOVED the astronaut costumes (not exactly superheroes in the 1980's) but I thought they were ROCK STARS!
