Halloween costume almost finished.
I’m very much in love with this fabric glue – it’s a little stinky, but it dries fast and works. The feathers look awesome and for the most part it really works well. It’s hard to get a two-year-old not to jab and stretch their way into a knit shirt, so the stretching caused a few corners to unaffix, but we made a couple of quick repairs in place and were good to go.
Next up this week – the mask. Then I think we are officially finished.
This is a great project for an easy handmade costume. A couple of fabric pieces cut into feather shapes, and arranged in overlapping rows starting at the bottom. I trimmed the upper pieces to align with the sleeves, and circled the neck with a final row of feathers. The feathers wrap around the sides of the shirt which I think makes it extra cute.
