But what does this have to do with crafting, you may ask? I crafted my own German wear. I didn't have access to a real dirndl or other authentic German clothing so I headed to AC Moore, bought some supplies and started creating. All it took was a plain white t-shirt, a few markers, ribbon and a hot glue gun and I was ready to roll. I faked a dirndl and am proud of it (and it cost a lot less than the real thing). If you're attending any Oktoberfests of your own, feel free to use my shirt as a template.

And look at how absolutely adorable these little German children are. Too cute for words, right?
