Have you heard about the Project Run and Play contest? Well if not, and you like kids fashion, go to @projectrunandplay profile and have a look. My friend Toya mastermind of the blog @madebytoya is one of the contestants and she is doing a fantastic job! Look these hawk wings she made for her daughter 😍😍😍. Please check the website of Project Run and play and if you like what you see, vote for her! #kidsfashion #handmadekidsfashion. Photo is taken from @madebytoya blog.

This was the “pièce de resistance” of the nightmare moon costume. Made in EVA foam using #evilted helmet pattern as a base. The ears and horn are sculpt in foam too. Also I add some acrylic hair to make the mane. It took me so long to make it! -That and burned fingers too-I guess because was the first time using foam and making a helmet, but her face when she saw it finished was priceless. I have already my next task for Halloween 2019: she wants to be an alebrije...if any of you have ideas I’m open to read them because at the moment I don’t have any idea where to start for next year’s request. #evafoamhelmet #nightmaremoon #halloweencostume

This is the best picture from Halloween night and my nightmare moon pony. Hand made with love for my birthday girl. @madebytoya and @sewinglikemad 😘😘😘

Happy Birthday to my girl! Special cake made by the lovely @sianyhannah. She made my girl’s fantasy cake! And tastes amazing too! #unicorncakes

Foam helmet ready to seal and paint. This has been such a learning curve for me, very interesting one. I think the part I did enjoy the most was sculpting the unicorn horn from flat sheets of foam. #evahelmet #nightmaremooncostume #nightmaremoon #kidshalloweencostume #handmadehalloweencostume #eviltedpatterns

Well this is looking like a helmet already! I need to clean all the seams and also add details in order to seal and then paint. Was definitely easy to use glue for the seams instead of the sewing machine and has been very interesting to make a 3D instead of 2D. #nightmaremoon #evahelmet #handmadehalloweencostume

Today I’m totally out of my league. Making a helmet from EVA foam for my daughter Halloween costume. Fingers crossed everything go as planned, not so long until the 31! #eviltedpatterns #evafoamhelmet

Sort of WIP, is a #desmondrolltopbackpack for my husband. At least I have all the pattern pieces ready to cut the fabric, I need energy power to finish this!. #sewphotohop #sewphotohop2018 @houseofpinheiro

I really want to participate in #sewphotohop this year, hopefully life will be good and will let snap a picture for this challenge every day for the month of September. Hello everyone 👋 I’m Maria, a Colombian living in the UK. I like to make my own clothes, chocolate, coffee, the sea, cats and fabric - not necessary in that strict order- I start sewing seriously 8 years ago and was mostly for my kids, but now is for me and sometimes for my husband. Before the end of the year Im hopping to tackle my first bra and maybe first pair of jeans 💪🏻. I like to Knit, crochet and hand embroidery, although I would like to do it more, with two little kids sometimes the day is not enough to do as I want. @houseofpinheiro #sewphotohop2018

Having a great time in the Jurassic coast. I never thought pebble stone beaches would be comfortable until now #sun #jurasiccoast #pebblestonebeach

Second part of the treasures. Besides Barry’s fabrics, I visit @guthrieghani shop and this is what I got. #landerpants pattern hardware kit and fabric to make husband a #desmondrolltopbackpack and some lovely viscose for maybe making myself a jumpsuit 🤔 #fabricturism #prettyfabrics
