Friday Night Sew-In

Well, I didn't get to work on this..

..because I was working on this..

While at DisneyWorld last month, little Mr. Five saw this hat..

..and immediately insisted on being Pluto for Halloween.  Found some felt the exact color for a couple of bucks a yard, and a pattern to use as a guide.. and Ta-Da!  Pluto.

Made the top tonight, now just need to finish the mittens.

Did manage to eke out some sewing time for myself tonight, too, though. :o) Made some hexie flowers.

Kinda wanna make this hexie quilt for my mom.  Going to post the plan again, just to keep myself motivated. 

That is it for my Friday Night Sew in results.  Looking forward to checking everyone's posts out tomorrow. :o)

What a great "Pluto" suit. Looking forward to seeing Mr Five in it.

Lovely hexies to make your quilt out of.

Oh Pluto is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Can't wait to see Mr Five in the finished product. Soooo cute. :)

That costume is awesome, can't wait to see the whole thing together. The orange/blue blocks are such a tease...can't wait to see them getting together too!

Hexies are on my list to try, Have never done one at all. The quilt idea looks fantastic too.

Love the costume, the hat is adorable. Just back from overseas and have jet lag so I need to get back to my routine, sew.

Can't wait to see the costume on! You really should make the hexie quilt - it's a great plan!

Your son will be an adorable Pluto!! Good job.

Mr Five is going to be one posh little guy in his halloween costume!

Your son is one lucky young man! The fun of halloween costumes that you make yourself is that they will stand up to be used for play long after halloween is done.

Your little guy is going to be a fantastic looking Pluto! The hexes look great...make the quilt, you will feel great!

The Pluto costume is so cute! I've got to get over my fear of hexies. Yours look great!

I am still way digging that hexy layout. How are you going to accomplish that? Applique? Or piecing? Sigh, I need to finish my TBs. Damn it. Oh and Pluto should meet Tinkerbell...we have wings and skirt but I need to figure out a top. Hmmmm...I think just white will have to do it'll be cold anyway!

Josie said...

That Pluto costume is fab-u-lous!! Your little chap is going to get loads of treats on his night out wearing it. Love your hexies too both the big and small ones. I don't quite get 'the plan' but I'll be watching to see how it turns out... cheers!

Oh my! What a great find to get the felt you needed for so cheap. Mr Five is going to have a great time in his wonderful Pluto costume! (Pluto & Goofy were always my favorites!)

All that, & you still had time to work on another project! Very productive FNSI!

I was looking for a shirt in that exact color today. Almost mission impossible cause it's the #1 fashion color of this fall and almost sold out everywhere. Looks like you could make me one ;-) That costume is gonna look so cute!

What a great costume, made me laugh out loud when I saw the hat.

One of these days I'm gonna start a hexi quilt. I bought a booklet with templates and very good instructions :)
