I worked on Santa's cape and hood most of yesterday. I think making this part of the costume is my favorite thing to do because it is a pattern that my mom and I designed some 25+ years ago together. It almost feels as though she is with me during this part. Oh Oh OHHHH...I was able to get my sewing machine to working which made making the cape so much easier and faster. I think I must have a group of pixies in the studio. I mean they could have let me get the machine running when I was making the fabric Tooth Faerie assistants, eh? Now that I have completely gone off on another subject, what were we talking about? Oh yes...the cape!!
I know I said in an earlier post that I was going to use fur on his cape but while hunting for the right color thread (ya know ya just have to have the right one...so it hides those seams..hehe) I found this AWEsome piece of trim. I was so excited...it matched perfectly...so I used it!!
After I finished with the cape part it was time to give Santa his signature head of hair and beard. This part I always get the giggles doing because....well....let's just say that I probably get more hair on my fingers than I do on Santa. HAHAHA or should I say HOHOHO!!! I shake my hands trying to get the hair free and discovered that I soooo shouldn't do that because Boo thought I was wanting to play and she pounced on me. Yes, yes...I had to take a timeout and play with her so she would let me get back to work. Silly cat!!
Until next time.........Hugs,
