Halloween: Chevy Impala
Halloween! Ok, so unfortunately I didn't take a picture of my actual costume, but I was a Chevy Impala. It sprang from me wanting to make a series of stuffed antlers (look for moose next!). So I cut four identical curvy sections out of dark grey (modeled off some sweet cast resin antlers at Crate and Barrel). I sewed one side of two of the curvy pieces together leaving the other sides open. Then I cut out strips of brown and folded them over each other to make them thicker to stand out on the antlers. I positioned them on the gray, making sure they would match up when the second side was sewn up. This was definitely the longest part of the process.
