"You are so creative!" I have heard that phrase constantly since I was little. DIY, Refashioning, Crafting, Sewing, Woodworking. I love it all! Now I have a place to keep my favorite projects or ideas organized and share them with you!

Candy Corn Fairy

Photobucket

I have always wanted to try making a pillowcase dress. So when my daughter asked to be a Candy Corn Fairy for Halloween I knew that a pillow case dress would be a perfect fit for this costume. A candy corn fairy was her original idea. It combines two of her favorite things, fairies, and her favorite fall candy, candy corn.

A pillow case dress gets it's name because you can easily make it out of a pillow case. There are many pillow case dress tutorials online. So I am not going to be turning this into a pillow case dress "how to" post. Just a simple idea to use it in a new way.

We also made the fairy wings ourselves and by we I mean my daughter helped make them.

My fairy wing tutorial is here.
