I’ve had an envelope full of paci clip hardware sitting on my desk for about 3 months now. I’m still planning to make a few for Liam, but haven’t gotten to it yet. I definitely didn’t plan to use them for this…
But it is what it is. After my friends and I decided to dress as vampires tonight, we decided to dress the 2.5 year-olds as baby vampires. They’ll each have the above paci, which they love because it means they’re allowed to have a paci when it’s not bedtime. The need for a clip is a no-brainer– I’m not going to go digging around in dead leaves as darkness is falling trying to find a lost prop. By this time next year these kids will have big opinions on their costumes– we’re getting this one in just under the wire. If they’ll sit still enough they’ll each get a widow’s peak painted on with face paint. K was invited to participate in the theme but she was wholly committed to the baboon costume.
I didn’t bother making the paci clip fancy– I looped it through the paci and the clip and stitched both ends on my machine. It’s just this scrap ribbon, from here. Quick, dirty and creepy.
The vampire theme was not my idea– and I had no idea when I agreed to it that I’d be having mouth surgery four days prior. I think I’m gonna skip the fake blood capsules?
Have a frighteningly fun day!
