I'm in awe of Ang at Tracing Rainbows who can whip up a child's fancy dress costume in the time it takes me to say Abracadabra!
There is no chance I'd be able to do that so when I saw some new fancy dress costumes at the car boot sale selling for £2 each I bought a couple for the future.
There's a princess and a genie for 3-5 year olds and originally in B&M for £8.99. Just need to look out for a magic lamp!
Should save a panic when Florence gets invited to a fancy dress birthday party which seems bound to happen sometime in the next couple of years.
Thank you to Marksgran for offering some dies, that would be lovely - just to find out if it works. I looked for some at the car boot sale but no luck and haven't been anywhere else over the weekend. I'll put my email address after your comment on the post.
I had thought about taking my unwanted stuff from the cupboard-under-the-stairs to the first boot sale of the season at Stonham Barns but the forecast changed so decided against, glad I did as Sunday dawned foggy cold and damp and then went on to be very wet - much needed rain for the garden - and very cold.
