Week 43 Stash Report

I started out this week with no plans for a Halloween costume for Megan... we don't have much trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, Megan's an early-to-bed kind of kid, and I didn't want to go to the city celebration. But then I found out her class is having a Halloween party and the kids can wear costumes. So I thought I'd go buy her something simple. But after a couple of days I got the great idea that I'd make her a costume.

A quick trip to Hobby Lobby and $25+ later I have 4 yards of Kona cotton (Apple and Pear) ready to turn into Tinkerbell.

Week 43
Added This Week: 4.00
Added Year to Date: 322.50

Used This Week: 4.00
Used Year to Date: 122.50

Net Used This Year: -200.00

I just realized that my year of weekly stash reports is going to have 53 weeks. Yes, I know there are 52 weeks in a year, but I wrapped up Week 1 on the first Sunday of the year (January 3). So maybe I should have called this little experiment Sunday Stash Report... 53 Sunday reports doesn't look as strange as 53 Weekly reports. Oh well!!

I made this same costume for my daughter. Please let me know if you make the wings and if they stand up for you. Mine, not so much...

I made the Iridessa costume last year for my daughter. I did not make the wings - I just found some white ones at the store.
Good luck! That's a doozy of a pattern.
