OK, when I was younger, we never would have dreamed of BUYING a costume. Which was fine, because our mom is a mater seamstress and whipping up a few costumes was not only easy, but she loved doing it. I am NOT a seamstress... I can sew buttons, I can crochet, and I can quilt. THat is it. I dont WANT to spend 40 buck on costumes... but I seem to have become creatively disabled lately and need some ideas for home made costumes... 5 and 4 yo boys.
