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 8 - Pink Dressing Gown

This was the most fun one yet! I had an old hand towel and I simply made it up as I went along! The satin edging finished it off nicely. I love the little rope with satin tips. Edging is much better for the thicker fabric. My machine cuts through like a hot knife through butter. So happy with it. I am changing between feet as I go from straight stitch to zigzag. I have also changed cotton colour. This sewing buzz is a breeze. I may never buy clothes again!
