This one I made recently. It took a while to finish it. I used a green foam mold, some silver floral picks, blue yarn, and a glue gun. I started knitting with the blue yarn and it wasn’t working to well, I guess the yarn was old and it was falling apart on me. One of the plys was broken and it effected the strength of the rest of the yarn, it broke the other plys. So this is what I decided to do with the yarn since I didn’t think it was good to throw it away.
This top was rather fast to make. Doesn’t look like much, but hey, it’s just a costume, doesn’t need to be great like it would if she was wearing it every day. I also made a cape… but I forgot to picture it. Now all I have to do is make shoe covers and knee pads out of felt…. oh geez… and hat, i just realized that as I was typing this. Darn. Definitely start before October next year. And what in the world is going to happen if I ever have another kid. I’ll have to start in March.
Well the gloves are done.
This dress is too much trouble. I have yet to figure out how I’m going to do the overskirt. I just did this dress out of the top of my head. Next year, if I’m making something I will definitely buy a pattern. I also probably need to do a skirt to go underneath to pouf it out a little, but I’m not sure I’m going to get there. I should definitely start this before October.
Instead of buying gloves for halloween… besides who knows where to find those nice gloves in pink…. for a relatively cheap price? I decided to knit them. It’s my first time knitting gloves. I’ve done mittens, but not gloves. I used to think that it’s very difficult to pick up stitches, but actually, it’s not that bad. I think I get better at it each time I do it.
I need to put a bright green fringe on the cuff, but other than that, I have one hand done. I used this pattern. I have to say that it is confusing. I had to assume several things for it to make sense to me. Maybe I just don’t have enough experience reading patterns, but they should try and make it a little bit easier. Plus the format kind of sucks.
My girls love Super Why! They run around and ask me to tie blankets around their necks for capes. 🙂
I’m going to make some handmade costumes. I’m going to knit gloves, the hand warmers, and Wonde Red’s hat.
I’ll post updates on what I’ve got done.
