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:
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!
