S1E13 Show Notes:
Here’s a roundup of the resources, patterns, and projects mentioned in this episode:
The Haunted Doll
♥ We regret to inform you that Mollie’s doll has elected not to be photographed. (Honestly, it’s probably safer this way.)
Handmade Kids Halloween Costumes
Heidi’s Elephant & Pig Costumes:
♥ Turns out, Simplicity 8830 was the pattern, and it includes SO MUCH MORE than just the elephant and pig! Heidi just bought a copy of the pattern from a vintage Etsy seller to celebrate, so if you’re obsessed with this 80s-tastic pattern, you can still get a copy. 🙂 http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Simplicity_8830_A

Mollie’s Bird Costume:
♥ Also a Simplicity! 6671 can still be found from a number of Etsy sellers: https://www.etsy.com/search/?q=simplicity+6671&order=most_relevant&view_type=gallery

Haley’s Wonder Woman Costume:
♥ Haley’s mom dug out some grainy photos from 1987. The handmade crown and cuffs are kind of visible in a couple of them: https://www.instagram.com/p/BokddtWj9d_/
Heidi’s Mouse & Cheese (store-bought & used a lot!) Costume:
Mollie’s Wizard of Oz Sibling Costume with Yarn Loop Lion Mane:
Haley’s Bed Sheet Ghost Costume:
Alas, a photo couldn’t be found. And Haley definitely threw the actual costume away when she found it in her mom’s basement recently, because it was kind of gross!
Heidi’s Minnie Mouse Costume:
Please note that Heidi will never forgive her principal for stifling her Halloween creativity almost 2 decades ago.
Bonus inspiration: Not quite Heidi’s recycled robot costume from middle school, but you get the gist:
