Accessorizing Halloween...

 
  Alguna vez te pasó que tienes una idea que llega a convertirse en obsesión???
  Pues la idea de este bolso me tenía completamente obsesionada desde el año pasado por estas mismas fechas...  yo sabía exactamente lo que quería para lucir en la noche de Halloween, todo comenzó cuando yo encontré un pequeño broche en forma de araña en una tienda... entonces pensé que estaría genial sobre un bolso con una telaraña bordada con hilos de plata... pero el tiempo se consumió en otras cosas y la idea estuvo durmiendo en mi cabeza hasta este Halloween, yo no podía dejar escapar otra vez....

   Ever happened to you to have an idea that grows into obsession???
   For the idea of this bag, I was completely obsessed since last year at this same time... I knew exactly what I wanted to wear on Halloween night, it all started when I found a small spider brooch in a shop so I thought it would be great on a purse with a cobweb embroidered with silver thread.. but time was consumed with other things and the idea was seeping in my head until this Halloween, I could not let go again...

  El cierre de cartera se obtuvo de un pequeño bolso de fiesta que estaba bastante estropeado.  Así que yo corté la tela por las líneas de costura y esto me sirvió de patrón para el bolso de telaraña...

   The closing portfolio was obtained from a small party bag was quite spoiled. So I cut the fabric in the seam lines and this became of pattern for my spider bag.

  Con hilo de plata para bordar, y toneladas de paciencia... contruí la telaraña, si usted alguna vez utilizó esta clase de hilo sabrá que coser con él es un auténtico dolor de muelas... el hilo se enreda y se rompe muy facilmente, así que hay que usar trozos muy pequeños de hebra de hilo para no terminar con un ataque de nervios...

  With silver thread embroidery and tons of patience... I built the spider web, if you have ever used this kind of thread to sew with it, will know is a real toothache... the thread gets tangled and breaks very easily, so you have to use very small pieces of wire strand to not end up with an attack of nerves...

   La tela es terciopelo negro y dos trozos de cordón de seda hacen de asas, la araña es un broche que se puede quitar y guardar cuando el bolso no se usa para evitar que  el roce estropee las piedras brillantes de ella.

  The fabric is black velvet and two pieces of silk cord make handles. The spider is a brooch that can be removed and stored when not in use the bag to prevent spoiling rubbing it rhinestones.

  Para conseguir el juego, yo cosí un sombrero con lo que sobró del terciopelo, el patrón está obtenido de un viejo sombrero de tela de los que se usan para la playa, tan fácil... el adorno del sombrero son dos pequeños pendientes de plata en  forma de araña que tienen la tira de años, yo añadí un trozo de cadena entre ellos dos.
    Tanto el bolso como el sombrero están forrados con tela de gabardina sobrante de algún proyecto que no recuerdo, aunque las fotos están tomadas de noche, yo intentaré hacer algunas fotos con la luz del día para diversión de vestir un outfit compuesto por estas piezas y algo de mi armario..
                     Y tú?   Preparaste ya tu look para Halloween??

  To achieve the matching, I sewed a hat with a scrap of velvet, the pattern is obtained from an old fabric hat used for the beach, so easy... The hat is adorned with two small silver earrings in the form of spider that have a strip of years, I added a piece of chain between them. 
   Both, the bag and hat are lined with cotton fabric left over from a project that I don´t remember, but this photos are taken at night, I will try to do some photos with the light of day to wear a fun ourfit consists of these items and some by my closet... 
          And you?? Did you prepare your look for Halloween??

  1. You did beautiful work! I find spiderwebs very beautiful, but spiders scare the dickens out of me! Even little ones.
    I have never been a big fan of Halloween. I don't like costumes, don't know why, but I just don't.

  6. Your bag is simply lovely! I know the headache with sewing with metallic threads; they "strip" so easily! You've done a beautiful job!
