A preview


Had a blast making these. These spider legs are crunchy btw. They're filled with plastic bags....was not in the mood to make yet another run to the fabric store so we improvised.

Love the purple and black fabric. I had a hard time figuring out how to do the regal collar. It turned out pretty cool once I figured it out.

I wasn't as excited about making a ninja costume. Are you sure you want to be a ninja? I asked him several times. But these boys don't change their mind once it's made up. Then I discovered you can do fabulous things with felt and I got super excited and it might just be my favorite of the three. I could have bought a ski mask for $5 but decided since I had extra black fabric that I would at least try to make it. I took a look at how the ski mask was made, went home and got to work. Not too shabby. Just don't ask me to follow a pattern because I've never done that before.
