I know its been a long time blogging but in my defense I have been busy, crazy busy with sewing orders and stepping toes into the local film industry costuming, set and the like. Today our Mad Scientist is the 'Other Mother' from the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Perfectly creepy as a book for (not too young) kids, teens, adults and as a read aloud for extra scary bits. You can read about it more in this great review I found online if you are not familiar with Gaiman's work already. So as not to give it away if you have not read Coraline, the Other Mother makes your choice to stay in her world permanent by sewing black buttons onto your eyes.
You are going to need:
Hand sewing needle (About an 1 1/2" long and thin)
Thread to match your shirt.
Sewing & Knitting Gauge (see photos)
Snaps (smaller than your button size but not the tiny ones) nickel or sliver if lighter colored shirt and black if dark
What will you create today?
