A story with a snowball: making a snowman costume yourself
Why are New Year and Christmas holidays good? This is the time of reincarnation and fairy tales. The Snowman costume is as popular as Santa Claus, because this image is suitable not only for children, but also looks great on teenagers and even adults. Such an outfit is not limited by age and gender: you can buy a Snowman costume for a boy and a girl. And if you wish, you can sew a snowy masquerade analogue yourself, spending a few hours of free time and connecting a little imagination.
The kids just adore the characters of the cartoon "Frozen". Especially many are delighted with the funny Snowman Olaf. To please those present at the holiday, be sure to make this original image, sewn with your own hands.
There is nothing complicated in needlework. To sew a Snowman costume, you need a minimum set of tools and materials: scissors, threads, needles, pins, a sewing machine, fabric and decor. Also, in the process of work, an iron is useful - you need to smooth out the seams, folds after each line.
Before starting work, prepare a place for convenient placement of the canvas. To dress a winter character, you need one meter of white cotton fabric; you can use fleece, which resembles snow in its structure. To make the outfit look believable, you need to give it volume using a synthetic winterizer. The length of the costume is determined depending on the size of the future character.
Detailed description of the costume creation:
- Fold the fabric in half. For the convenience of cutting, you can use any T-shirt or T-shirt. This will help cut the neckline and cut out the sleeves of the suit. The lines must be transferred to the wrong side of the canvas.
- Cut the sleeves and neck along the fold. Tuck the edges and sew. Then the material below the hands must be sewn to the end of the product. To visually narrow the suit, insert an elastic band along the bottom with a smaller diameter of the resulting circle.
- A narrow elastic band must also be inserted along the waist line. It will serve as a stop between the two "snowballs".
- Buttons must be sewn to the body of the fairytale hero. If there are no large houses, you can glue circles cut out of black felt in the center.
