Ooooo, how I love Halloween!
And the Barn of Opportunity never fails to supply me with the inspiration nor the supplies.
Last year I read about this spider web idea on a Betz White blogpost and off I went to look for a doily at the B. of O. Gotcha. Had the rick rack, the plastic spider and the old embroidery hoop (What can I say? I hoard too much stuff).
Gitsy Palmer came through for me several years ago when a friend wanted me to make a Bride costume for her daughter's Halloween costume. Gitsy decided it was time to bring second life to her own beloved wedding dress. I converted her gorgeous dress to a version fit for an 8 yr. old princess. It is modeled here by my friend Jorja, before it was sent off to Anna in Maryland. I loved making it, and Anna loved wearing it.
I need to get back to the sewing machine. I'm finishing up Olena's Rapunzel gown and my own costume... I can't give it away yet, but I must say... it's "practically perfect in every way."
See you in the parade on Friday... and Trick or Treating at the library Halloween night from 6-7:30 ish. I'll be handing out a few spoonfulls of sugar.
