Around The River Bend...

It is with absolutely NO surprise that my little one... Charlotte... wanted to be Pocahontas for Halloween. To purchase a Pocahontas costume from the Disney store would have been TOO simple... and according to Charlotte, "That's not what Pocahontas wears!" ... looking at that $20.00 costume, she was absolutely correct... they put frills on it, glitter and tried to glam up Pocahontas' dress. Charlotte was definitely not sold on it, so off I set to Hobby Lobby to pick up some faux suede to create a one of a kind dress for my sweet girl. She loves playing dress up so much, that I knew this labor of love would be totally worth it. And it was. There were no patterns to use to create... so I just managed it by "eye", watching the movie. The end result.... a VERY happy little girl... the fact that I sewed it all during Marley's nap, was priceless, even though I really wanted to nap with my little girl that day. Seeing Charlotte smile and gawk over her costume, just about did me in...

And of course Pocahontas needed her little pet raccoon, Meeko... her trusted sidekick played by Marley... 

Pin It!
