1  Weeping Angel and TARDIS in Halloween Costumes by Candlesprite7 on: November 02, 2012 06:05:24 AM
My daughter begged to be a Weeping Angel this year. How could I say "No!" LOL So we headed over to the craft store, picked a pattern, and some fabric. I had to think about how I was going to make her look like a statue and ended up buying some spray fabric paint which works great! Except that your finger hurts after awhile of pumping...LOL I ended up going back and buying a small can of white spray paint to kind of help fill in the spaces.
Also made a TARDIS trick or treat bag. No pattern for that, I just looked up a pic of the TARDIS and went from there.

My Daughter in her finished costume, she loved it! And Trick or Treating was soo much fun this year!

Oh the fun of laying out patterns :-)

All I have left is to hem.

Starting the spray painting. I actually did this outside, of course I picked a windy day right? lol

Hi all!
I've been lurking for a long time and I've finally got something to share :-)
I did these for my brother who got married a couple of weeks ago, he and his new wife are huge Potter fans so I thought they'd enjoy having these dolls. I worked with the Dr. Who Pattern from Pixelated Mushroom, which is a most excellent pattern! I love the size, it is perfect for a good sized doll. I've made two of the Dr. Who dolls (#10 doctor which my friends kids have dubbed "The Cutie Doctor" lol) and then thought about the Potter dolls, I elongated the coat to make a robe and latch hooked the hair piece by piece instead of the original hair style. I wanted a bit of a fuller look. I really really really stink at sewing/embroidering so I used puffy fabric paint to paint their faces on  Cheesy

It was a fun project, it took me a couple of weeks and a few tries to get them looking the way I wanted.

I hope you enjoy them also!
