Gratitude Friday this week comes to you from the sewing room. The sewing room I'm ever so grateful to have. I cleaned up the junk hole this week. Found the top of my cutting table, dusted off the sewing machine and actually sewed. And it felt good. Just like old times.
I made Bayleigh's Halloween costume- not entirely from scratch, so I guess you'd call it semi-homemade.
The hat and the t-shirt were purchased, I added the little extras. The tutu is a no sew version. Just cut and tie the tulle onto a length of ribbon or elastic. Easy! There are many tutorials online for doing this, the only thing I did differently was double up the tulle to make it extra poofy. I don't think it's showing up in the photo, but every fourth section of tulle is glittery, giving it a little sparkle.
I made a couple of flowers to dress up the plain black hat and a matching one for her shirt.
She has purple and black stripey tights to keep her little legs warm and finish off her witchy ensemble. I hope she likes it as much as I do.
