MADE IT MONDAY: Repurposing for Halloween (My current project)
// September 24th, 2012 // Sewing
Let me start by telling you that this is a work in progress that I am sharing today. For Halloween my daughter decided she wanted to be a cowgirl. Yee Hah! Well my crafty mind went to work immediately. All in all, the costume is quite easy. A cowboy hat, bandana, a pair of jeans and a vest. We had all but the vest.
A did a search on eBay and found a men’s suede shirt and snatched it up for $7.00.
The idea is to repurpose this into a child’s vest with some fringe. I made a quick pattern using one of my daughters short sleeved shirts and a paper bag.
And strategically cut the shirt so I could utilize the existing buttons. I’m trying to keep this as simple as possible!
Now I just have to piece this together, finish off the seams and get some fringe on there! I’ll keep you posted on the progress!
