Happy Halloween everyone! I’m afraid this is a repeat post, but this little ghost pattern gets a lot of downloads at Halloween time each year. So here you go!
Last week on Friday, I gave you my free, printable PDF sewing pattern for making the little pumpkin Halloween candy basket, which you see in the images above and below…
And as you can see in the image above, there’s also a Halloween cat costume available, and it will fit Barbie and similar-sized dolls. Click here to find that outfit.
But what about the ghost costume that was pictured with the Pumpkin candy bucket? Hang on… just read a little bit more, and I’ll get to that…
As my regular followers know, I teach an online course in pattern alterations. An alteration is when you take a pattern for one item and turn it into another. For example, what if you took today’s ghost costume for Chelsea dolls and turned it into a cactus?
Believe it or not, pattern alteration isn’t difficult at all. Let me show you how easy it can be… For more details on how to make the cactus version of today’s ghost costume, just click here. This is just one example of simple pattern alteration.
I suppose you could use the ghost pattern to make other characters… sew it out of yellow felt and make an orange mane for a lion costume, for example. Use your imagination to come up with any variations that suit you.
If your significant other is struggling to figure out what to buy you for Christmas this year, maybe think about asking him/her/them to purchase my online alteration class. It takes up no room in your house or apartment, and you get a lot for your money!
Here’s a link to my bio page, where you can see what classes I’m offering on the Creative Spark online learning platform, and you can look at the prices for each course.
Now, with that said, if you’d like to make today’s ghost costume (or an alteration of it), what you’ll need is simply a bit of craft felt.
And that’s all!
