With Halloween on its way, I have been working on non Printed Bolt projects. I am working on turning the adorable little boy below into a banana for Halloween. Since my sister couldn’t find a good quality banana my sewing skills were called in to remedy this problem.
Here is my rough sketch. It took a little while to find the right fabrics to get the banana feel. I ended up going with a fleece for the exposed banana, so that it would have the soft, fuzzy texture of a banana, then I went with a polyester for the peel so that I could get a little more of a smooth and waxy feel. Then I have built up a wire frame to give the banana and the peel some structure.
This weekend I don’t have to leave the house, unless I want to so I have devoted it to sewing all weekend. I have the banana to finish, two table runners for Fons and Porter and a few more REPEAT projects before Market. Are you making any Halloween costumes this year?
