Bela’s costume.

It started with Bela learning about Star Wars

from her friends from school…..

…..and she wanted to be Princess Leia today!

Her outfit is a collaboration between some cool ladies. All HAND MADE.

The hand crocheted hat by Grandma Chol.

Bag by Grandma Blanquita made off vintage scraps.

Belt by me.

Bela helped stitching the center circles!

and the dress sewn by America a friend of my mom’s in El Salvador.

I really loved the color of the fabric my mom chose for this costume.

Have fun this weekend!
