Cute Witch

Jenna wanted to be a "cute witch" for Halloween. Not a mean one. Not a green one.

So the whole thing was inspired by the witch hat I got from a friend, years ago.
It was originally from pbkids, and I just loved the gingham brim.

So I found some matching fabric and some other fun halloween fabrics.
I didn't use a pattern, which I kinda regret.
The bodice turned out a little bigger than I like, but I'm too lazy to redo it.
A waistband can cover that up a little bit.

I'll admit I had to pick out a sleeve 3 times and I got a little frustrated.
I don't know why I was surprised it didn't turn out exactly as it was in my mind,
with my limited sewing knowledge and all.

But then I remind myself that "as long as she likes it, that's all that matters."
And she does love it! She loves her spiderweb tights.

She loves her sparkly broom. (You can't really see the sparkles in this picture).

The fabric and all was about $20.00 which I'm good with!

And the snaggletooth (that loose one in the front) was free!

This is her best impression of a mean witch. Yep, she's still smiling! She better stick with the cute witch.

Next up, a gypsy costume. Any ideas or inspiration?

Now for some news! I entered a little contest over on SEW DANG CUTE.
I don't know what I was thinking, thinking I could hang with all of this amazing talent.
But I couldn't resist the chance at working with the "stars" (the big-time crafters).

Well, low and behold, we are in the finals (top 12)!
I'm so excited and nervous. I told Kass we gotta muster up our "A" game, whatever that is.
Good thing we will have the help of Cheri of "It's So Very Cheri."

Anyway, we will be posting a project over on this weekend,
then people VOTE! I hope all of our friends and followers will join in the fun and wish us luck!
Our assigned theme is:

This is giving me a jolt of motivation to do a project I've been wanting to do for a while.

  6. Well I think you hit the target with cute! She looks adorable in this. You did a great job!!

  7. Your witch is super cute. I'm still working on costumes. They are taking way longer than I wanted.
    I was confused when I found out you were Crafting With The Stars. I was wondering if you were the Star or the Crafter? Honestly you two should be giving the advice. Good Luck. Crafty Competitions can be stressful but so worth it. I'll be cheering for you.

  8. I love orange and purple together for halloween! Exciting to play a bit out on the "craft floor"!

  9. I am honored to be competing against you, but after seeing this little witch number, I'm ready to throw in the towel. Holy ADORABLE costume! Great job.

  10. Super cute witch!! And congratulations on Crafting with the Stars! Good luck!

  11. Too funny that she can't stop her cute little smile, even when trying to be scary.
    I can't wait to see what you come up with for the contest. Get on top of your game girls!!!

  12. Hey my friend just made a gypsy costume from something she got from a Martha Stewart magazine...I think it was a fortune teller, but kind of the same, right? The skirt was adorable, cut strips of different scarf like material stuffed into a cute belt. I bet if you googled it, it would show up. ;)

  13. So excited to see what you made for the first round! I turned my project in today (biting nails) and am looking forward to seeing everyone's knock offs :) Good luck!
