I hope you're all having a good weekend!
Guess what I've been up to? Here's a peek of what I had to work with.
Did you guess?
Well, I've been making Halloween costumes for 2 of my grandkids. I didn't take pictures of the whole process because it was literally just a disaster to begin with!!
Then I had to make the mask/hat thingy...
I covered the hat in a darker pink felt to match the costume a bit better. It had to be pieced and glued into place.
The horns were hand stitched and stuffed with polyfill. Then glued and stitched onto the mask.
The eyes are foam with felt glued to them. I drew up a pattern for the lashes and glued them on too. A pin held the eyes in place while glueing them onto the mask. Then they were stitched on for added stability.
I was at a loss as to what to do with the mouth. At first I was going to extend felt or foam past the neck and around so that her little face was in the mouth. UGH...WAY too much work!
In the end I came up with the idea to make a small mouth and put it at the end of the mask. It worked well if I do say so myself!
So here it is with the fun fur I sewed up using one of her jackets for a pattern.
My floor is now "FUN FUR FREE"...say that fast 3 times without messing up -- I DARE you!
My daughter in law will be putting shirts and pants or leggings under them to match and they'll be ready to go.
Have any of you figured out what they're going as? Hmmmm?
Well, here's the video that explains it if you didn't get the title of this post. I know some of you are old enough to remember this! :)
UPDATE: Well, here they are...Manah manah and a Snowth! :)
