We’re not going to a Halloween party this year, but I still wanted the chance to vote for best costume! I’ve seen a lot of great costumes online this week, but my favorite has got to be Micah Heiselt‘s Edward Scissorhands costume! Micah was a guest blogger on Black Eiffel last week, and I was floored when I saw his costume. It doesn’t hurt that he looks like Johnny Depp either! Happy Halloween!

Last weekend Hancock Fabrics was having a sale on sewing patterns, so I grabbed a few 99-cent patterns and decided that it was time to put my vintage Singer to the test. For my first sewing project, I decided to make the dress from the Very Easy Vogue 8278 pattern in a grey-blue lightweight gabardine. “Very Easy” might be an overstatement, but I worked on it a few hours each evening and finally finished it last night. It’s certainly not perfect (without a belt it looks like a potato sack), but it is definitely wearable and I’m extremely pleased with how my first project turned out.
I’m loving the images Volksfaden has used to introduce different fabric categories… Overlaying vintage black and white photos with their fabric patterns is such a brilliant way to show them off!
Random, but funny. I’m still laughing about “Pencil Telephone Hourglass!”
I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Mine was spent working on a number of craft projects I hope to share in the next few days…
I noticed one of these Mexican celebration banners on someone’s front porch during a run yesterday, and couldn’t stop thinking about its vibrant colors and intricate cut-outs! Plum Party sells white and color banners, or if you’re feeling adventurous you could try to make some yourself. All you’ll need is paper, an Exacto knife, and a lot of patience!
