A post from Kelli–
This past weekend, I worked a few extra shifts and did a little bit of quilt shopping with mom. It was a wonderful weekend, but I sat down after getting home from work on Sunday night and was exhausted. Jason was watching a show and there was an advertisement for halloween! Shoot!
I competely had forgotten about dressing up for work on Halloween. Previously, I have always had atleast one, but up to four costumes for any given Halloween between the day of and going out the weekends before and after.
I knew that I needed something quick-and preferably cheap. After a quick search on Pinterest, I had an idea!
I had a work meeting in Decorah on Monday, hit up The Depot to find a few things, and grabbed the rest of the supplies at Walmart.
Can you guess what I was?
I was a pig in a blanket! I found a headband with pink ears on it and added a bit of pink felt behind them. I made a pig snout out of a toilet paper tube and felt. I had the shirt and leggings, but picked up a sweatshirt at the Depot and cut the arms off to use as leg warmers. I also happened to have the Granny Square throw that I made into a cape. Overall, I probably spent $5.00 so it was a win for me!
I was working at the hospital, so I wasn’t able to wear the cape all day, but I wore the rest of the costume and it worked out pretty well. I was easily able to flip my nose up and down and just wore it around my neck.
I also got quite a few compliments on it. I didn’t win any prizes, but there were some awesome costumes from other departments. But the best part was that I was able to make a few patients smile….And that I would consider an accomplishment!
