Blogger: Life & Times of the Acklin Army, Squirrel Hill
I was asked (again!) the other day by someone who wanted to know how I made the boys' Oliver Onion and Sauerkraut Saul pierogi costumes. I made these a few years ago, back when I vowed that I would never buy a Halloween costume. Homemade all the way baby! Yeah, well, that lasted two minutes. So for the crafty folks like I once was, here's a tutorial to help you make a costume for the little Pirates fan in your life!
