Thank you Martha Stewart


In Belgium, not Halloween but Carnival is the costume event of the year. I never really saw the appeal in spending time on making something to be worn only once per year. Until I saw this awesome tutorial.


And so I spent the past three evenings cutting, pasting and sewing a set of giant butterfly wings. The entire outside is made of felt; the inside is some kind of mattress foam I bought at Rotterdam market.


Norah is thrilled with her costume. 

Martha you're my hero.
