A Spider Shirt for Halloween

Hello Refashion Co-op. It is Halloween here and that means costumes and candy. I am not that into costumes so I tried to make a fun but subdued shirt to wear for the day. I was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. 

I started with a plain black t-shirt. I found a scrap of lace for the neckline, it was just cheap polyester, but it worked well here.

I had this spider pin in a drawer or quite a while. You can see he didn't do very well in that drawer. He lost a couple legs. I thought he still looked like a spider and used him in his broken state.

Here is a closer shot of the shoulder with the spider. I attached a small piece of embroidery thread so it looked like the spider was still spinning the web. I can take the pin off when it is time to wash the shirt. I like the spider up on my shoulder too.

Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

I wished some 'workaholic spiders' with skills like yours is indicating would really exist ( ;-) +sigh)

Maybe helpful hint: try to store 'spiders and the like' upside down on some sort of bottle cap/top. This way sensitive legs are more secure (since in the air).
Exception: when stored 'too casual' in some sort of 'collection drawer' like some of mine (oooops + ;-) )
Btw.: bottle caps/tops work just as nicely as egg cups!
(rings; incl. wedding rings as well. Some days discarding egg shell AND ring cup/cap afterwards might be even a good idea ;-) ;-) :-D )

I love the subtle playfulness of this project, Chickie! And I love when a project comes together quickly. Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the comment ladies. You were right g. I should have stored the spider more carefully. I can be messy in the sewing room.
And thanks Mel-Bee.
Happy sewing,

Hi 5, Chickie; 'very'/plenty' of it as you can figure out via my comment !
