The boys love the Mickey Mouse version of “The Three Musketeers” so it came as no great surprise when that is what they wanted to dress up as for Halloween. I was probably more excited about it than the boys were because I’ve called them “my three musketeers” since the day Jack-Jack was born!
I’m too cheap to buy costumes unless they are on clearance after Halloween, so I thought I would just sew something up for them. Problem is, I don’t know how to sew much beyond an occasional pillow. After my grandmother passed away, my aunt gave her sewing machine to me. I truly do want to learn and you can google anything, right? I would make costumes!
The summer months passed by and the school season began. “I really need to think about starting those costumes,” I thought. However, I greatly underestimated how full my days would be once the school began, and how many sewing materials I lacked to begin the process. It was time to throw any aspirations of me being some sort of flimsy version of Martha Stewart out the window.
BUT… I would make it work… somehow. That’s what we mom’s do, right? You find a way to make whatever “it” might be happen! After gathering some materials, I made some templates, and started to work. As for my “needle?” Well, “liquid stitch” would more than suffice for the costumes I was creating!
So, without further ado, here are our three musketeers!
All for one, and one for all!
Or, as Stitch would say, “All for one, and one for one!”
