Halloween 2014

Taking a basic steampunk costume from value village for $39.99 and kicking it up a notch with embroidery from urbanthreads.com

This is what I started with:

Original Steampunk Costume from Value Village

Using some great steampunk embroidery designs from urbanthreads.com I embellished the top:

Using my existing Kwik Sew pattern and scrap materials I had, I made some fingerless gloves.

On one glove I embroidered a beautiful pocket watch design from my new steampunk collection, while adding a more industrial look to the other glove using grommets:

And last but not least my gear mask sewn with metallic thread and created with the help of an urbanthreads.com tutorial:

Embellished with gears, chains and spin arrows from Michael’s scrap booking section:

In the end it turned out to be a super fun costume to pull together in no time… Well in a few hours before Halloween anyways 😉

Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween and happy sewing!
