I love how it’s both appropriate for Halloween yet still stylish at the same time, so you can really wear it all year round. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Beaded fringe fabric 
  • Black fabric
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Needle and thread
  • Pins
Cutting base fabric

1. Cut base fabric

First, cut some black fabric in a ribcage shape.

This will be the base where you will sew the beaded fringe fabric on top of it.

2. Cut fringe fabric

Next, cut your beaded fringe fabric into strips and then pin it to the black fabric.

I looked at a picture of the ribs while I was doing this to make sure that my design would look somewhat anatomically correct.


3. Sew to base

Proceed to sew the strips of fabric to the base to look like a ribcage.
