Here's a spooky T that is easy to make for your little one or just for yourself. A subtle nod to the Halloween festivities. All you need is some felt, embroidery thread and needle, any old plain T.
Cut a template from card then pin to the felt, cut round then
remove pins. Then pin felt shape onto the T and stitch on.
Then embroider any spooky message you want and add details like eyes etc.

Last bit of Halloween decor for you, couldn't resist making one last bit. All you need for your spooky chic bunting is black card, a hole punch, a Stanley knife, and some ribbon. Cut some silhouettes out of the black card, cut it out, make a hole in the top and string onto the ribbon.
As simple as that, the cat face is my favourite.

Rex is growing at the rate of knots, so I am always on the look out for quirky kids stuff for him.
I am in love with these gems below which you can get hold of here at Bibaloo. The Tiger T and Snake Sweatshirt are by a fab brand called Mini Rodini who do amazing prints, and the Trews and braces are by Arsene et les pipelettes. Love Them !

Rex has had some fun with his Halloween craft now its our turn. This also could be done with the kids too though. All you need is some cardboard then cut out some ghostly and spooky shapes with a Stanley knife. Then use a hole punch to make a hole at the top and add some string or ribbon. Use acrylic paint in your desired colours and a pen for finer detailing.
They can be hung from anywhere or anything. Part of my Halloween inspiration was from my day of the dead skulls from Mexico. This is great source of inspiration for a slightly different take on Halloween decor.

Rarrrrrrrh ! Look out this Halloween here comes's the cheeky pumpkin boy !
Here's a quick mask to make out of paper and ribbon. It involves one of Rex's favourite things sticking.
Just cut a pumpkin shape out of card and cut little shapes out and decorate. Staple ribbon to each side of mask and hey presto, you have a pumpkin mask.

Such an amazing find, this brilliant kids brand Marmalade & Mash really is a gem. All of their kids clothing have a wonderful nostalgic and quirky edge to them.
It really has the best English eccentric feel about it, just look at this yellow moleskin waistcoat,I'm going to have to get one for Rex its just so dapper.
Their whole A/W collection for girls and boys is just wonderful, I just wish they did adult sizes too.

Rex loves a camera especially mine, so much so I now have a nasty scratch on my lens, Arrrrhhhh! gutted. No toy camera will do as its nothing like the real thing. We were at a bootsale and there was a stand selling old vintage cameras. Rex of course clocked straight away. We picked this little beauty up for £1 ! and Rex loves it as the button clicks and it has a wind on film lever. Its the best £1 I've ever spent and he takes it everywhere we go. Say cheese ! x
