Sewing, Sewing Patterns

Finishing Up Old Projects…Entry 2

Halloween gave me a great opportunity to finally make a costume pattern I’ve had for a very long time.  Just like that backpack from 1991 this Costume Pattern dates from around this time.butt5749

Remember the tie dyed aprons I did a few entries back?  The couple I did these for tied the proverbial knot this past weekend and it was a hoot!  Everyone was in costume and it was a total blast.

The bride and groom were tie-dyed forest fairies.  Hysterical but very sweet.  Complete with tie-dyed wings, shoes, and coordinated trimmings.

I was a costume sewing fein these last two weeks.  I went to the store about 7 times and spent two full Saturday’s and a few late nights at the machine.  It was really a lot of fun though.  Jim loves his hat.

Let’s see.

Fleece, Feather, Elastic, Pink Satin, Gold Braid, Hot Pink Satin, Pink Netting, Buckram, Interfacings, Cape Green fabric, Tunic Brown Fabric…..legging material (vinyl) for fake overboots…this was a hoot!

I went to Vogue, JoAnn’s (ugh), Hancock, and Hobby Lobby.  Hobby Lobby turned out was the best.  I’ll have to remember this for next time, it was completely unexpected.

I was really aiming to make this exactly like the picture above…with the materials I could find.  Please don’t look too closely!  Whoo Hoo!  I love costumes!

  1. I’m pretty sure this is the pattern I used to teach my husband to sew with (almost 2 decades ago). I’m also pretty sure it is the only thing he has ever sewn. Every once in a while he mentions that I lost his hat.


    1. Oh my gosh! Jim loves this hat LOL!!! He has it in his office and breaks it out during the Christmas Tree hunt. I made it out of fleece so it is actually a little warm.
