Halloween 2014

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

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:
