Superquilter Costume

Love to knit, quilt, and crochet? Save the day—er, the "crafter-noon," if you will—with this epic costume. It's right up your alley.

Make the Costume: Cut a quilt into a trapezoid shape; sew a corresponding color bias tape around the edges to finish. At the top corner of the trapezoid, sew a correspond- ing color ribbon for ties. Use a scrap of the quilt to cut out an oversize letter “Q” and blanket stitch it to the front of a T-shirt. Blanket stitch around the edges of a felt superhero mask and round out the look with a tailor tape measure bracelet adorned with sewing charms. Glue a metal thimble to a silver ring blank to create a superpower ring.
