I was able to finish both Brandon's and Kimball's costumes just in time for the School Party on Friday.
Here is Sponge Bob....I mean Brandon. I used towels to make his costume, wooden dowels to make it square, and then I did some appliqué. I did then stitching to finish it up. Brandon painted (or used colored paint markers) to make his socks.
Here is Kimball from behind. I made a sandwich board type of costume for him, I am really glad that I did because he kept wanting it off and on. I used a Thomas the train pre-quilted quilt that I found at a thrift store. I cut out the main Thomas and then cut out the rest of the trains and wording and appliquéd it to the back of the sandwich board.
You can't really tell, but I did embroidery on all the lines and outlines of Thomas. I wanted it to stay in tact when we would later wash it. Luckily- or should say "of course" we had some Thomas clothing to wear underneath.
I wish I could have done a better photo shoot of these two costumes but You an only do what your children will let you.
