LAST HALLOWEEN GHOSTS FOR THIS YEAR

 Hi all,

Wow, it's been a few months since my last post. I got really busy with my Halloween order this year. I took 2 months off this summer to travel to Santa Fe where I worked in the SF Opera costume shop, making hats for this season.

And, here are the last Halloween dolls I made for this year -- More Ghosts! 


(I'm thinking of making this doll into a pattern)



I made 3 new "Dearly Departed" dolls to sell at Roger's Garden this year. Their Halloween event has just opened, so if you're near Corona Del Mar in California, go check it out.



I make a few of these dolls every year, and somehow, they always end up getting finished after everything else is done.



The dresses for these Ghosts are mostly "improvisational". I make them up as I go. I don't use patterns (I do have some basic sleeve patterns, though). Mostly, I just start pinning fabric to the doll and start sewing.


I have a large bag of bits of white lace, trim, and beaded pieces I attach here and there -- again, no plan.

Okay, I'm off to make something new for my Halloween Yard!

Have fun! AB
