Thank you all for your comments! I did make my own illusion chart for this project. It took me about 6 months of knitting almost every day for atleast an hour a day. Then i lined the back with black fleece and it has satin edging. Im glad everyone likes it.
Halloween 2006. I think this one was my favorite so far. Mom and I crafted this one from a sliding curtain rod (to fit through doorways) felt lettering and accents, red sweatshirt fabric (walmart special) an old curtain for the light yellow and twine for the "noodles". I had a fleece "noodle hat" complete with little bits of seasoning crafted from felt and chopsticks to act as bobby pins for my "hair do". And of course the costume wouldn't have been complete without the flavoring packet goodie bag, which was also made from fabric and my moms talent mixed with a red sharpie. We really had fun making and wearing this one. Among the pictures you will spot the infamous "mom" wearing none other than the whoopee cushion! We can't wait until Halloween 2007.
Halloween 2005. I saw a picture of a whoopee cushion costume and mom and I decided that it looked very cheap so we decided to make our own. I picked up the salmon fleece at walmart for $2 a yard and the color was perfect. The frame of the costume was made from one of those magic sunshade things so that you could collapse the costume to drive or sit......or fit through a doorway. It was a very warm costume. Mom hand drew the picture on the front and had quite the laugh as we were attempting to make the "hat." We werent quite sure of the correct spelling of "whoopee" so we had to go buy a real cushion. And then just to top it all off my mommy bought me a fart whistle. Shes so great! (She actually wore this costume to a bar in 2006)
This is a costume that I made the day before halloween in 2004.Talk about last minute. My mom always tells me I'm a little bit different but thats what people love about me. Then there are the ones who tell me I'm too old to dress up but they dont know anything. I carried a colander for my goodies and yes those are real noodles glued to my front along with a wooden spoon that I hope my mom didnt want anymore.My boyfriends costume was thrown together about an hour before we walked out the door. We stapled foam bones to his mechanics coveralls and my mom did a great job on his make-up. She also made my cheese hat. Kudos to mom!
I have been a member of craftster for a while now, however this is my first post. I got bored and crafty one day and created the pattern for this blanket. It looks like a bunch of colored boxes on the blanket but when you turn it the right way the dead bear heads emerge. I am really happy with the way this blanket turned out. It is basically the same size as a queen sized comforter and weighs about as much as a mid-size SUV. enjoy!
