Hello everyone! Drawing Addict is back with ANOTHER great post! It’s week 7 (we skipped week 6) of the Student Blogging Challenge, and this week’s challenge is going to be spectacular! For this week, we had four options to write a post about. This week’s post had to do with the holidays, so the options are obviously related to that. The first option was to write about a specific holiday (or more) that your family celebrates. The second option was to use a photo that represents a holiday and write about it, giving details about its history, and why it’s important. The third option happens to be crafts, so you can make a craft and take a photo of it to put on your blog. You would have to write about the craft, how you made it, and how is it related to the holiday (one you choose). The fourth option was to make a poem about your favorite holiday, which should be detailed.
I, in order to live up to my name (literally), am doing a craft for this week. I am planning to sew something with fabric and a sewing machine (or maybe a hand sewing kit.) I am not completely sure what I am going to sew, but I have a feeling that it will turn out good (since I am totally a master at sewing. 😉) I think that I am going to make something related to Halloween. I guess I will have to wait and see.
(I wrote this a few days after this^)
I have decided to make a pumpkin for Halloween. I am in the middle of making it, and all I have to do now is reinforce the outside and sew on the pumpkin’s face and stem. Note that I am not a professional and my sewing machine was a little wacky when I used it. I am still getting used to using the sewing machine since I am more accustomed to hand sewing. I definitely struggled with making sure that the stuffing wouldn’t come out because of the rough sewing. You are probably wondering how I made this little project, lucky for you, I am going to tell you. I started off by grabbing one big piece of orange fabric. Then, I folded it and cut out a shape that resembles a pumpkin. Next, I turned on my sewing machine and put in some brown thread(because I didn’t have any orange thread.)
I started using the machine to thread the outline of the fabric. While I was sewing, I left a little area to stuff with stuffing. During my sewing, I came across a slight problem. The thread in the needle was bunching up and getting stuck in the sewing machine, which halted the sewing process. I managed to get it working after a few trials and errors. I then looked over my work and found holes in the fabric, from which the sewing hadn’t been enough to close it. This resulted in me having to go over the outline of the fabric one more time and close up all the holes. When I finished the outline, I used a pencil to make some curved lines on the pumpkin to make it resemble one more. After that, I grabbed some left-over black felt(from which I had sewn dementors with) and cut out eyes, a stem, and a mouth. I finished it off by sewing the black felt onto the pumpkin. The final result will be below!
I am afraid I could not upload a photo of my masterpiece.
