Cabbage Patch Costumes

All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

I have bought myself a new sewing machine and I am determined to gain some skills behind the wheel. My childhood Cabbage Patch Doll, Ronda Rinata Boyd, could do with a wardrobe of fun costumes! As I am involved with our local theatre Centre Stage, I would like to be able to help make costumes in the future too. Some days I will design the costume and collect materials needed. Other days will be make day!

Day 33 - Strawberry Patch Kid!


Sometimes a thought comes into my head and I can't let it go till I act on it. I designed this strawberry using geometry hard out! I had to work out the circumference from the diameter I was after then divide it by four to get the width of each strawberry panel. Her little hands and feet stick out the sides and bottom. So many calculations went in to this! I wanted to make it because I had stuffing to play with! The seeds are made out of shells from a necklace from Fiji. Polar fleece is easy to sew with. So once I knew how I was going to make it the rest just came together.
