The Claire Witch Project*

Did you see the super cute witch hat applique pattern over on UCreate last week?

I did.


And my niece Claire is rocking it. (Tangent: I swear she suddenly has WAY more hair than when I saw her 3 weeks ago.) She also has ruffles on the bum. The skirt is just a bunch of strips sewed side to side with a little waistband and then I hemmed it with bias tape.

Has anybody else tried the applique pattern? What other Halloween wear have you made?

*Totally ripped off the title from an email my SIL sent me.

And I’m adding another pic of the ruffles because they KILL me!



  1. That is adorable!!!

As I was looking at the eyeball wreath I was thinking HOW IN THE WORLD????does she come up with this stuff? painting ivy black…you inspire me to be more crafty! Have a great day! I think I'm going back to bed!

    So adorable. What other title could you have possibly thought of that would have been better? None?! Correct! Karmen

  4. In answer to your question…No, I have not tried the appliqué pattern. No. Sorry. Nope. Not yet.

  7. Ruffles on the bum?
    I love that and I am 30!!!
    She is super cute!!

  8. I LOVE it! And I LOVE her.

  9. I made the shirt this morning. I love it and it was great practice for me. I've had a lot of difficulties trying to figure out a good way to applique on my machine. I liked it today but it still needs a little tweaking to get the settings just right.

  10. Sew cute! I am going to bookmark this as a new grandchild will be wearing this next year. Thanks.
