Handbound: Your Thursday Dose of Chronicle Craft: Handmade Halloween


Last year we let you in on how silly Chronicle gets around Halloween with each department taking on the theme of one of our books and fiercely competing for the top slot. Needless to say not much work gets done around these parts Halloween day. We’ll be sure to share embarrassing photos in our next post but this week we’re wondering what you’re dressing up as this Friday. Link to a picture in in the comments or let us know what genius costumes you’ve come up with and we’ll send one randomly selected commenter a copy of Stencil 101, French General Home Sewn, Handmade Hellos, and The Sock Knitting Kit. And in case you need some last minute inspiration here’s some goodies we’ve found:

Paper Sneaker by Afrodandy

Sun Maid Raisin Girl by Carol of WIP

Corpse Bride by Crafty Chica She has very detailed instructions on how to recreate this look on her site.

    Is it too late to participate in the drawing?

    I dressed up as Amy Winehouse.
    I used a finch nest (new, straight out of plastic wrap) for beehive hairdo base, plastered on a half-pint of liquid eyeliner, dressed like a rock-star trollop (visible bra strap, leather mini), and carried a see through handbag filled with (empty) prescription bottles. I’m a straightlaced gal in real-life, so my costume really had people laughing.
