Cutest Little…


As soon as Squirms was born, Matt started to brainstorm ideas for their father/daughter Halloween costume. One of his first ideas was the one that stuck – he as Luke Skywalker and Squirms as Yoda, especially from that one scene in Empire Strikes Back. His costume never went anywhere, so we’re left with just Squirms.


I found a pattern via Ravelry for the Yoda ears hat then adapted another for the cloak portion. I think it turned out really well for only a few days work.

And, yes, we did take a few dozen photos between my iPhone and Matt’s camera – these photos are all from my iPhone because I’m impatient. Here is an outtake.
