This year, I was determined to make my little ones Oompa Loompas. Thus began "Operation Wonka-fy":
Plan A: Buy some thrifted brown shirts and white pants and repurpose them into costumes. No such luck.
Plan B: Find brown turtle necks, brown socks, and white pants at any store. Not happening.
Plan C: Buy pattern and fabric to create our own costume. No pattern. No brown and white striped fabric. No brown socks. No green wigs. Plan D?
Plan D: Make EVERYTHING from scratch. Never mind I've never made a pattern, sewn a shirt, or worked with knit fabric...oh, and did I mention I waited until the weekend before Halloween to get sewing?
