It was the fairy tale theme for the month of November (2017) in T’s school. He wanted to be a Knight. I made him a simple vest, sword and a shield.
- Grey, Red and Yellow felt fabric
- T-shirt for the vest outline
- Template for the lion
I had some leftover grey felt fabric from BB8 costume. It was a small piece but just right to make a vest. I used a T-shirt to draw the outline for the vest. Fold the felt fabric in to two and draw the outline. Cut along the outline giving some space to sew the open end of the vest.
Cut a piece of Red felt and use a glue gun to stick it on the vest. Take a piece of yellow felt, cut it in the shape of the lion template and stick it on the red felt. Cutting the lion shape was the tough part. For detailed felt cutting, use good quality felt and scissors. I used good quality felt for the lion shape and dollar shop felt for the vest.
Shield & Sword
- Gold and silver Craft paper
- Red paint / Red craft paper
Cut the cardboard in the shape of a shield. Cut two holes in the middle and insert an elastic/ ribbon and tie the ends together. This will help to hold the shield. On the other side, stick the gold craft paper.
Cut the lion shape using the same template and the red craft paper. Stick it to the shield. I colored the edges and the lion using red paint. I painted it because I ran out of red craft paper. Using red craft paper is less messy.
Cut the cardboard in the shape of sword. Use Silver and gold craft paper to decorate.
