I had to quickly recall the Disney/Pixar movie, Monsters, Inc. when I learned that our granddaughter would be dressing as the character, "Boo" from that movie for Halloween this year. Of course, I wanted to keep in the theme for her Halloween card!

Happily I didn't have any trouble finding a svg cutting file for "Boo" on Etsy. Many to choose from, but I used the svg file from Sportrops and was very pleased that it cut cleanly and accurately.

Decided to keep it simple and decided to do an easel type card.

And guess who got selected to sew the costume! LOL, I had to dust off my sewing machine and pray that it would still work! My daughter purchased the pattern from Punkie Monkey on Etsy.

 Finding all fabrics and notions needed to make the costume took a little time, but once I got started it wasn't too bad. Being that our granddaughter lives in a different state, the hardest part was not being able to have her try it on to make sure it would fit. I think it may have been a little snug, but hopefully her momma will be able to make the needed adjustments so she can "Boo!" tonight.

Wow, Eunice! You are so talented! You probably forgot who I am, but I had inquired with you about the Shiba Inu calendar you created for the Kapahulu Senior Center fair in 2017. My aunt wanted to do something similar for her son, but she has yet to find a cutting machine. I am blown away by your many talents. Thank you for having such awesome creations on your site.

Gosh you are a great grandmother. That costume turned out fabulous! I am the kind of grandmother who just waits for the photos of my twin grandsons. They are only 3 months but their parents dressed them up as sushi. LOL!

What a cute, cute card. I love those eyeball antennas. You are a great seamstress too. Her outfit turned out well. Glad you sewing machine worked. I hadn't used mine for about 15 years and when I tried to sew something the motor smoked. It was "fried." LOL
