Halloween sneak peek

If you know Carter, you know what he will be for Halloween this year. I've been slowly acquiring all the pieces from the green shirt to the workman boots throughout the year.  After finding the plain green T-shirt, the hardest piece was a tool belt that fits an almost 2 year old. I finally decided to improvise and make my own.

I started with a $1 adult tool belt from Walmart and cut it in half. Then, I had to pull out the seams and shorten it.

Look Grandma! I actually used pins to hold everything in place before I stitched (I usually don't have the patience for this step).

Finally, I added the ties back on and stitched 2 lines to divide the tool belt into 3 sections. 

It seems to hold his tools just fine!

You made me proud Heather (using pins). Mr. C looks as though he's ready to go to work.

Too bad Manny doesn't have a SBM to go to! :-) Maybe Grandpa can bring him his next apron.
