I must be nuts. Really, I must.
In 17 short days it’s Halloween and I’m thinking of re-doing my costume. Again. For the third time. Okay, it’s not the entire costume, it’s just the coat I want to re-do.
This year, I’m going as a vampire queen and I need to make an entrance. The first coat I made is a beautiful dark red. Nice, but somehow not quite right. I’ll save it for another time. The second coat is a gorgeous greenish-blue and I made three-dimensional bats from fabric, interfacing and paint and attached them to this coat. I’m really happy with the way it turned out.
I had every intention to have fabric and patterns purchased today, and I would have the pattern pieces cut out tonight. Well, not quite. I did order two patterns that have potential, but who knows, I may get them and decide not to make it until Halloween 2016. But I have a feeling I won’t; once I get an idea like this, and it’s pinging off the insides of my skull at a hundred miles an hour, I’ll probably do it now.
So if I go through a stretch when the blogs aren’t too consistent, or simply non-existent, I’ll be sewing like a bat out of hell.
