Thought you might like to see what I've just finished making - a costume for my little step-grandson Bailey, who is going to be a Mince Pie in his first school Christmas play. I sort of made it up as I went along ...
The pastry crust was made of stuffed, stitched and painted felt; the mincemeat filling was crumpled tissue, painted and then coated with Mod Podge; the silver foil case was created with layers of felt, wadding and silver lame, stitched through to add texture and stability.
Let's hope he likes it ... and let's hope my stitching holds! :o)
All being well, I'll post a picture of him wearing it next week ... keep them all crossed for me!
