For the fairy tale theme this year, I made Peter Pan Costume for T. We decided very late and I had very little time to make it. I couldn’t click any pictures while making the costume. 😦
- Light green felt for the top
- Brown felt for the belt and hat
- Little straw and red felt for the feather
- Elastic for the hat
I didn’t have light green felt fabric. I had light green rayon+cotton fabric with me which I bought during a sale. It was lying idle for a long time, so decided to use it. It was not a good choice. I had great difficulty in cutting and sewing it. Felt is always a good choice when making costumes.
I used T’s old T-shirt to cut the body shape and sleeve. I sewed the open end and made cuts below and on the sleeves.
I folded a long brown strip of felt into three, sewed end to end and attached a velcro on both ends.
I followed the below link. It was simple and easy.
For the feather, I cut two pieces of red felt in the shape of a feather and glued them together with the straw in the middle.
In the end, I felt the hat was too small for T. I should have made a bigger one. 🙂
