It was only five years ago that our granddaughter, Helena, celebrated her first Halloween. This was a costume I found for her. From the day she was born, my husband had nicknamed her "pumpkin" in honor of her strawberry curls. When Helena first began to talk, she would point to me and say, "Nana" and point to him and say "Punkin". The name stuck and they refer to each other as "punkin" now.
So when I saw this at fatcat patterns, I just had to make it for her. Happy Halloween dearest Helena!
