I’m Jessi, and I blog over at The Berry Bunch! Thanks so much for having me share some inspiration for costume, villain design! I am so excited to share with you the costume for baby girl this Halloween. Crafting Con has been such a fun event! Check out my July competition post for Star Wars here.
Our costumes always center around a theme and this year little man picked Batman. So what to do for baby girl? The hubby suggested she be Harley Quinn. Why not? And, it fits in perfectly with this month! We may not have a joker in our group, but when Harley Quinn is this cute, who needs a joker?
For the Harley Quinn outfit I used Peek-A-Boo Pattern Shop’s Aloha Burn Blocker. Baby girl is a funny size, 12 month length with 6 month width. My little skinny minny. I extended the shorts to be pants and moved the zipper to the back and color blocked. Instead of neck binding hubby and I (it was a team effort) drafted the collar and used minky.
The hat is a basic hood pattern that I just sewed the seam until it was fairly tight fitting. Then added the jester/horns stuffed with poli-fil and attached the ends under the chin. She did not like it at first, but I think she likes the feeling of the jester/horns bouncing as she runs! She would not stand still for pictures!
Hopefully this offers some inspiration for your Halloween costume sewing! Isn’t it amazing what you can do with any kind of pattern?
Thanks again for having me share for CraftingCon! Happy Sewing!
Our giveaway this month is from Fabricworm
This month we have opened the linky party to ANY COSTUME! That includes last Halloween and this one. We are planning to leave the linky open a week past Halloween to allow for late entries, just in case you can’t get pictures of your costume until the 31st. And don’t forget, it’s ALL COSTUMES, adults as well as kids.
