Are you a good witch or a bad witch?

When Lala was three she wanted to be a witch for Halloween, and she wanted to be a pretty one. Baubi told her that there was no such thing as a pretty witch. I quickly chimed in with "Oh yes there is, her name is Glynda"

This is the most detailed and crazy thing I have ever made. I loved it.

When I was making it, I couldn't find the right appliques. In an act of desperation I made them. Two butterflies, two flowers, and 14 stars. 10 -15 yards of sequins, and who knows how many rhinestones later I was done.

When it came to her crown I took a piece of organza to the copy store and had them laminate it. Then cut out the shape and glued the glitter and rhinestones on.

I love it so much that I am not quite ready to part with it, sorry it is still going to be hanging in my closet for a few more years.

If you would like to win the Wicked Witch of the West you can leave me comment here. I won't make you go back and enter on yesterday's post. If you were iffy on being my friend, I hope you will think about it some more and add me now. You might even win.

See you tomorrow with the last witch from Oz.


  1. This is so beautiful! The work you put into it is amazing. Your little model looks like an angel!

  2. I'm a good witch, thanks for asking!

    But you know the sign on my bedroom door says: Don't make me call out the Flying Monkeys ;)

    I love that costume. And both Maddie and Pearl have made darling Glinda's. I should dig deep in the archives and find the photos of them both. Such cuties.

    Keep up the crazy sewing, friend.


  3. This costume is wonderful! I made the Mombi dress last year and it was a nightmare to make so I totally understand your applique problem. But the result us great, and she looks so cute in it. Well done!

  4. Oh this is so wonderful.....what we do for our precious little ones. I love this posting, thanks, Oma Linda, The Olde Bagg.

  5. How absolutely cute! Give her a big hug from me

  6. I never would have thought to laminate any type of material! Great idea.

  7. This good witch is totally gorgeous, but I'm still in love with the wicked green grin ;-)
