Real Life Raggedy Ann!

Oh my goodness y'all, I signed in to start this post and looked at the date of my last post...WOW! I knew Oct was a busy month but yikes, didn't know it was so busy I didn't even post. 

What were you doing? you might ask.

1. I hosted TWO meal making parties!
2. I hosted a super fun formal dinner baby shower for me sweet friend!
3. My mom, Lindley Belle & I went out of town for a cousin's wedding!
4. I started working part-time at The GAP!
5. Attended a couple different "fall" gatherings!

Whew...perhaps at some point I'll actually post about some of those. HA! But for today, I just wanted to brag about my little Lindley Belle...I know, shocking right. 

Last night, my sweet little girl transformed into my real life Raggedy Ann doll! I had the MOST fun putting this costume together. 

~ The blue dress was an old dress of mine when I was her age.

~ The white "apron" was a dress from the summer. I cut a large piece off the bottom and hemmed it. 

~ Then I sewed on the red rick-rack all the way around.

~ I made this red bows with some random ribbon I had at home and attached them.

~ The wig is made out of some super cheapy yarn I got at Hobby Lobby and an old crocheted hat that she never wears. Attaching the yarn to the hat was prob the longest process of all, but I'm so glad I stuck with it because it really "made" the costume!

~ You can't see in this pic but the white lace bloomers she's wearing are an old pair of mine from when I was her age.

~ I am sad to say that the leggins are store bought. I was on a mission to find women's knee high sock and sew my own pair of baby legs (which is what I normally easy and so much cheaper!) But I searched the city for knee high socks in that print and none where to be found. So her leggings in this picture are from My Little Legs.

~ I added a little face paint and DONE!

Trick or treating with her last night was a blast. At the first few houses she was very confused but eventually she got the idea. She would smile, wave "Hi" and "Bye" and even say "Thank you" after she reached into a bowl and grabbed her loot! Her Poppa (my dad) said that she stole Halloween!

 Here is a little video of my real live rag doll!
