Sneak Preview

Mac wanted to be a dragon for Halloween and, being the loving mother that I am, I tried to accommodate. He picked out the fabric and I made him some dragon wings with a matching tail that he will wear over an orange outfit. For the tail I found directions online but the wings I had to design myself. This is my first attempt at a costume (and maybe my last) but I'm pleased with how they turned out. Measuring Mac's arm I was surprised at how short it was, even for him, 11 inches from arm pit to wrist. His whole arm is smaller than Zach's foot. Mac's not exactly my biggest child.  When I finished the wings I was glad I wasn't making them for all of my children, which was the original plan! On to the next holiday preparations- Mac's 4th birthday. (November 6th)
