As my sewing skills are improving. It is opening up a whole new world of crafts. I am a huge fan of Halloween and have great childhood memories of costumes, trick or treating, and halloween parties. So now that I can sew, I decided to jump in and make costumes for the kids this year. Johnny wanted to be Spider-Man. I took to Pinterest to look for inspiration and found a tutorial from a blogger, shannonmakesstuff and also a great blog, dana-made-it, which had tutorials and patterns for standard t-shirts and pants for kids.
Here is a sample of the webbing on a scrap piece. I reccommend practicing first, before you take it to your nicely sewn shirt and pants. This takes patience and a steady hand, but i like the look of the puff paint much more than fabric marker. Here are a couple of tips: draw out the vertical lines one inch apart with a white fabric chalk before they are sewn together. I only did the vertical lines and not the scallops because that would’ve taken forever. Be sure to do the webbing in puff paint once the pants and shirt are assembled. You don’t want to gunk up your sewing machine by sewing through puff paint.
