This summer when I started sewing again, my son RJ started asking for a ghost costume and pulled out any white fabric from my stash. The other day I finally broke down and decided to throw a ghost together.
I took a yard of cheap, white, slub knit I had from a $5.00/ 5 yard Walmart bolt and cut off a yard.
I serged the sides to curve up for a snug fit on the head and tried it on.While he had it on I marked his eyes, then we talked about ways to make the scary eye holes.
He wanted them black, but I wanted him to be able to see where he was going, so we compromised on using black lace so we both got what we thought was important.
I drew 2" circles at the eye markings, pinned a scrap of black lace on the back, and sewed around the circles. Then I just snipped away the knit white circles, being careful not to cut through the lace, revealing the black scary eyes.
The overall shape just tapers from the head to the side seams which are the full width of the fabric, and I didn't even even off the bottom.
Look out for this creepy ghost!
It was really quick, I think since I serged it and just hacked it all out beginning to end it only took 10 minutes.
Love those quick, easy projects he gets so excited about!
Do you have your Halloween costumes in the works?
