I know we’ve all started planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas,
and most Halloween projects have already been forgotten.
But I’ve got a major crafting confession that I just felt couldn’t be ignored.
After helping dozens of you make your own adorable costumes with
the My Little Pony Sew-along, I wanted you all to know…
I didn’t finish my own kid’s costumes until one hour before sunset on Oct. 31st.
Yep, you read that right. This is procrastination at it’s finest!
I was working right up to the last minute putting the finishing touches on Spike and Twilight Sparkle.
I obviously wasn’t busy typing up blog posts, so what took me so long to finish?
Well, during the month of October I was completely swamped making –
3 Spike pants, and a one-piece Spike costume for everyone other than Corbin and Aurelia.
If you made 1, 2, or even 3 ponies for you own kids, you’ll understand the amount of sewing involved!
By the time I was finished, I felt like I had made a costume for half the kids in town,
but luckily my own didn’t notice or care that their outfits had become a last minute scramble.
Ha, I’m pretty sure all they cared about was the candy!
It doesn’t even matter that I started the planning and cutting out way back in August.
I still ended up waiting til the last minute. Happens every time!
How about you? Any other procrastinators out there?
