Happy Halloween!

Published by under Dog

This year for Halloween, Minnie was a witch. It was a quick costume I tossed together in about 3 hours including the time it took to go to the store and buy the fabric. About 2 hours of that was real sewing. She really looked quite adorable in it despite the fact that she really […]
