Thank you. I originally also wanted to add suckers to the tentacles using a contrast colour felt, and eyes, but then decided keeping it simple would look better. Nursery people were impressed, too
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Squid-Girl! Costume on: August 24, 2011 06:24:18 AM

It's zoo day in the nursery today, (and sealife is a zoo, too, right?), so I cobbled this squid costume together. There's no pattern, I've made it up on the go: I made a tutu by knotting strips of varying lengths of dress netting on an elastic. Then I cut a top out of purple felt, using one of my daughter's t-shirts, adding 10 tentacles, 2 of them longer with paddles on the end. The hat is a simple cone shape with a frill, and a hole for the face cut in.

It's all hand stitched because I was too lazy to dig out the sewing machine and took me less than a couple hours.

The daughter lurvvves it.

The lining is fantastic. Where did you get it?

I think it's a blend. But there's definitely a lot of wool in it. Should have kept the label which came with the yarn, shouldn't I?

I've got a gorgeous cardi which my bloke's granny knit for me. It's off-white and I stupidly stained it with oil from a bicycle chain. Really can't get the stain out, and would prefer it in a darker colour anyway, but have no idea how to go about it as all the clothes-dye available at my chemist says it's only for synthetics.

Can you help?

It's Simplicity 4243, but I added more lace to cover up shoddy seams. And because I like lace.

Thank you. She is rather cute indeed, but she doesn't leave me much time to practice my sewing (non)skills.
