A raccoon, a rabbit, a fox, a wizard, and a gnome walk into a publishing company.
This might sound like the beginning of a joke, but to the staff at Lark Crafts, it serves as an accurate description of our front lobby this Halloween! Weeks of planning and crafting have lead to our group bringing one of our favorite books—Playful Hoodies—off of the page and into the real world, and we are so excited to show off our hard work.
Not only are playful hoodies adorable, they are quick and easy to make. Josh, our wizard (and a member of our marketing/publicity team), had never sewn a stitch before beginning his hoodie! He was able to whip his costume together in just a few days.
For the seasoned veterans among us, like John (the fox) and Connie (the raccoon) one evening was all that it took to pull together an adorable costume. My simple rabbit came together in less than an hour. All of us agree that the most time-consuming part of our projects was waiting for our materials to arrive in the mail!
Playful Hoodies (and Sewn Together, an upcoming Lark title featuring our raccoon hoodie) have both proven to be fantastic resources for new crafters and veterans alike, for adults and children, and feature projects that can be pulled together in a weekend.
We would love to see your playful hoodies! Whether you craft a costume for a child, a friend, or for the whole family, make sure to share your photos on the Lark Crafts Facebook page!
