Costume's Done

Ok so when I posted about knitting this secret costume accessory, what I didn't tell you is that I was also planning on sewing parts of my costume.

Since I'm not great at sewing and I wasn't sure if I'd actually be able to make a costume but

  • 3 black Tee shirts
  • 3 pairs of gloves

  • Some Polyfill Stuffing
  • Fishing line
  • Half a skein of glow in the dark yarn
  • A pair of black pants plus some jewelry I already owned

And I've got a completed costume that I'm really happy with!

I cut the sleeves off of two shirts. Sewed the gloves to the ends of the sleeves and stuffed them with the polyfill. Then stitched them all to to the shirt I left whole. Once that was done I attached the stuffed arms on each side to the real sleeves with fishing line so they'd move with my arms.

To top it off my glow-in-the-dark web shawl.

I told hubby that I should put my spinning wheel out on the porch and spin some yarn in costume while we hand out candy.


  1. Thats a great costume! Is that bird on the chair real? Looks really spooky!

  2. Hi Tracey I got two of those birds at a local artisan shop- they are plastic, foam and fake feathers.... and they are really creepy. I bet my sister (who is afraid of birds) won't go near that chair as long as they are there.
