Halloween Costume Fabric Contest on Spoonflower!

We've entered another fabric contest and would love your vote!

This contest is to design a costume pattern that fits on 1 yard of fabric. My boys are obsessed with the game "Minecraft" and begged to be "Minecraft Steve" and a "Creeper" for Halloween. The cardboard heads are easy enough, but I haven't been able to find actual pixel fabric anywhere. Hooray for being able to design my own fabric!

I measured my boys and decided to make jumpsuits for each of them. Then I designed the fabric to match their respective characters. And since their little sister loves to be like them, I thought she'd enjoy a complete Creeper costume of her own. I love how it turned out! I squeezed every last bit of design I could onto a yard of Spoonflower's new Performance Knit fabric and I can't wait to get it and sew it up.

The above picture is the fabric/pattern design for her. It includes a: green pixel creeper jumpsuit front, back, neck binding, and sleeves, creeper mask/hat, black pixel shoe covers, TNT trick-or-treat bag with a black pixel strap, sew-in labels, instructions and a picture diagram (to show how to sew it all together), and a little creeper plushie with his own mini TNT trick-or-treat bag!!!

The following picture (not in the contest) is for my son's Halloween costumes. It includes the front of the jumpsuits, neck binding, and sleeve fronts for "Minecraft Steve" and a green "Creeper", brown pixel toolbelt for Steve, black pixel shoe covers for both costumes, sew-in labels, and mini plushies of "Minecraft Steve", a "Creeper", pickaxe, and TNT. All of those fit on a yard of the knit fabric as well. For the jumpsuit backs I plan to use a solid-colored knit.
I've ordered my fabrics and am trying to wait patiently till they arrive. :) I'll post pics and a photo tutorial as soon as they come!

Note: my fabric designs are not official Minecraft fabrics. I am not affiliated with Minecraft or Mojang. I just made a few designs for my kiddos for fun. :) If you'd like to know more about Minecraft, here's the link to their site:
