Better Know A Crafter: Rick Rainy

We had a lot of people shopping this past month for Halloween costume crafting supplies. Rick wins our award for best hand-crafted costume. He made up his Max pattern from scratch and hand-stitched the entire thing. Dang. That's pretty amazing.

Rick Rainy

1) Tell us about yourself--what makes you want to be crafty?
I am an engineer who just relocated to Denver last month. I loved the Where the Wild Things Are book as a kid and wanted to make the costume for Halloween. This is my first major sewing project.

2) Tell us about making your sweet Max costume.
It is just hand-sewn using about 5 yards of white bamboo felt. I just measured myself without using any real patterns--although patterns would have made it easier. So just a pencil, ruler, needle and quilting thread.

3) How did you learn to sew?
I taught myself for this project and learned as I went.

4) What is your favorite animal?
The wild things, duh.

Thanks Rick! Happy crafting and engineering!
