i need to make... Photo ADDED.

Post by Pommiegotlost » Mon Aug 29, 2011 6:21 pm

...a book character costume!

I think we have decided on tinkerbell, i have basic "mini stitcher" sewing machine which only does straight stitch.

Any tips or ideas? or even just words of encouragement 8-[

Go for it! I often start by using google images to look up Tinkerbell and see if there is anything I could take ideas from!

got an old tee shirt or two you can hack? you might get away with very minimal sewing if you cut a large/ long green tee into the jagged edges at the bottom and the basic curved shape at the top/ slim down the sides if needed and stitch to something like a light coloured long sleeve tee then add some fairy wings (assuming you've got some?)

The best part about using tee shirting is you don't need to hem it as it won't fray

There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness' :penguin:
