This year for Halloween Simon is going to be a spider. He is going to be a spider because we got the costume through Freecycle last year in a bag of toddler clothes and he loves it. I was a little disappointed that I wouldn’t be making his costume since I had some ideas, but I really don’t need more stress. So, I decided to fill my need for making him something by making him a bag to carry around for trick-or-treating purposes.
My husband was a little luke warm in his reaction to the bag. After some probing, he tells me that he doesn’t like it for Simon because it “looks like a purse”. I argue that it is in fact a tote bag and there is nothing girly about it. According to his logic if it is quilted, then it is a purse.
I finished this bag over a week ago and have been meaning to post about it all this time. But, I ended up going to NY to visit family for a short week and after we returned it rained for four days. We definitely needed the rain, but it did not make for good photo taking opportunities. I haven’t been working on anything else lately, except for making my list of Christmas gifts I need to make. I told my husband that I wasn’t going to make as many gifts this year, but my list is perilously long and I’m afraid I’m going to have to cross some things off. I’ll keep you posted.
