1  Help. Wolf Costume in Halloween Costumes by Knitem on: September 29, 2010 10:24:25 PM
My bf and I are going to an amusement park soon and want to dress up for their Halloween party.  I'm going as Little Red Riding Hood and we want him to be the big bad wolf.  The costume needs to be simple, one where we can ride rides all day.  I was thinking of just jeans and a cut flannel shirt, but can't think of how to make him more wolf-like.  He's kinda hairy (i.e. beard) so I was planning on just messing up his hair. What other easy accessories would work. Not sure how he feels about a lot of makeup or wearing fangs.

3  Queen of Hearts in Halloween Costumes by Knitem on: November 05, 2008 06:54:46 PM
So my friend had a black bridesmaid dress that she wanted to use and also had a desire to be the queen of hearts.  We tried to make it sort of tim burtonish, but since we were sewing hearts on after the party had started it didn't quite make it.
The hat was made out of paper mache and a two decks of cards. We used this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=117656.0 .  The flamingo was a lawn ornament from a friends yard.  The hat and the overskirt are what we made.

4  Susan, or the dress I spent hours making so I could wear once. in Halloween Costumes by Knitem on: November 12, 2006 09:41:44 PM
Thank goodness for amazing friends who will spend hours helping you make a dress.  I have been talking about this dress from the second I saw the movie.  I finally found a pattern that worked great, it even had the points on the sleeves.  We had to adjust the pattern to fit me, but in the end it turned out amazing.  Espcially since this was the first time I've ever made a dress from a pattern.  The quiver is made from poster board that I paper mached to make it sturdy.  The arrows are dowl rods.  I cut up some plastic leis to make the fletching.  So without further ado here is my Susan Pevensie dress based off of the Chronicles of Narnia.

5  Revamped family heriloom in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Knitem on: July 13, 2006 05:34:59 PM
This is the first picture i've ever posted on craftster so we shall see how it goes.

I loved this old quilt that my great-aunt made, but it started falling apart and was literally in two peices.  So I decided it would make a cute purse.  I used a giant round bowl for the general shape, then I used the border of the quilt as the shoulder strap.  I also hate purses that don't have a discreet place to put pads so i made a little bag that is attached inside because the hidden pocket was taking too long to figure out.  It also has a little cell phone pocket.

Overall i'm very happy with the design and how great it turned out.  Besides if someone took the time to cross stitch an entire quilt it deserves to be saved.

The bag and attached pocket

And the action shot.
