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.
