A couple years ago I saw a posting by mento_bug for a Voodoo Doll Costume she had made (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=217085.0). I fell in love and tried to make it last year, however having an epic fail with actual burlap it never turned out. So this year was round two and I am in love with my costume I can't wait to wear it out!
To create this dress I altered a simplicity pattern to fit my needs, what was so wonderful about it was that it was on sale for 1 dollar .
The fabric was given to me by a stupendous friend iota1617 for free (thank you), it is a natural muslin which work MUCH better then the burlap.
The heart is made of out a red vinyl. which I glued to the dress with some permanent fabric glue. I then did some simple stitch detailing with embroidery thread and finally stabbed my heart :-P. The needles are quilters needles that have a flat long back, I glued them to the inside of the dress leaving the pointy part out which I covered with yellow felt beads I bought from Etsy.
This is probably my favorite thing I have made in a loooong time. I am in love.
THANKS FOR LOOKING! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE'S COSTUMES THIS YEAR!!! <3
