A Really Long Halloween Post......
super ratty princess dress that she loves. I made this crown and wand from cheese cloth. Pretty cute if I do say so myself.
little black dress to have on hand. There has been much pretending to be a witch due to all the Halloween songs at preschool.
Riley Blake "Boo to You" fat quarters for the flags. I made a basket liner with black dot and giant rick rack from my stash and gathered up all the Halloween books in the house to put in it. It was fun to have all the "spooky" books in one place.
out of print pattern for years. It was a strange little pattern. I'm still not sure why there was all the attention to detail (faux fly, piping on the pants, topstitching on the back pockets, etc) and then the hokey felt fringe and collar. I kept telling myself there was some great reason I was unaware of, but nope. Just crappy instructions, no reason. The loopy decoration detail was supposed to be painted on, but I didn't have the patience to let it dry and I couldn't maintain a consistent line. So I used piping under the yoke and rattail braid.
Lego costume didn't fair so well. But still, it's pretty awesome. Behind the eyes and bill the pumpkin is cut out so it had a cool glowing effect.
