On friday, one week before comiccon, I remembered this scene from bob’s burgers. I had to go for it. So I worked really hard with the help of espphoto to get this done in a week. It was knit plain and then the yellow lettering was duplicate stitched on top to save time.

The color chart is posted here and can be used on any sweater (or anything) that’s more than 48 stitches across. There’s no pattern for the sweater because it was improvised. It’s pretty cool to know that I can make a body first and then calculate a sleeve cap to perfectly fit in the armscye without any problems. Set in sleeves are my favorite patterns to draft and seam.

I’ll post some photos of the con later this week.

DIY Lovely Rain Cloud Costume by Malin entering the Costume Contest at Costume Works. Malin’s daughter, wearing the rain cloud costume, came up with the idea and helped make it. From Malin:

We started out with a modified eighties taffety and tulle prom dress. With a few snips here, a tuck or two here, (and a lot of sewing) we had the base for our costume. We used a garage sale find, a wide brimmed woven straw hat, as our basis for the cloud and then draped, glued and sewed yards upon yards of tulle on top of it. After that we strung plastic beads and crystals at various lengths to make the rain drops and attached them to the hat with small metal rings. Gray satin ribbon were attached to keep the hat on and give it that vintage Victorian feel.
