We used remnants of fabric and focused on making the "cape" the main part of the costumes, since I hadn't sewn in awhile. One costume was the "ocean", with the inside of the cape looking like waves, and embellishments of sealife attached. In her hair was a starfish and ribbons to give a hint to the theme. One costume was a bat, with gray fleece for the wings, and ribbon as the bat bones. The "bat jacket" kept her warm on Halloween night. I'm already looking forward to next year!
