Peter Pan Costume

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. 😦

Peter Pan Costume

Materials required:

  • 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
Materials required for Peter Pan costume

 Tunic:

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. 

Belt:

I folded a long brown strip of felt into three, sewed end to end and attached a velcro on both ends.

Hat:

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. 🙂

Farmer & Tractor Costume

This month’s theme for T at his school is “At the farm”. I thought of making him a simple farm animal costume. Not the full costume but just a headband with felt ears attached to it. But two days back, T reminded me that I had promised him to make a farmer & tractor costume. I totally forgot about it. 😦

After few minutes of browsing, I decided to make a simple tractor using cardboard. I had a cardboard box of recently bought food processor. It was of perfect size.

I coloured the cardboard with green acrylic paint. Painted a thick yellow line on the sides.

Used two large sized paper plates for the back wheels and smaller ones for the front wheels. Coloured them with yellow and black acrylics.

Coloured a toilet paper roll black and used it as exhaust pipe.

Made the headlights using styrofoam cube (Sliced the cube into half)

Used an elastic band to wear it. Punctured two holes in the cardboard and tied the elastic.

Simple Tractor Costume

Making the costume took around 2 hours. Gathering the materials took much of the time. Luckily, I had all the materials at home. And here is T as a farmer driving a tractor.

Baker Costume – Apron & Hat

I made the apron using felt. I used an old apron to trace the shape on white felt and cut it. I also made a simple birthday cake using felt and glued it to the apron. The alphabets are pre-cut felt alphabets.

Baker’s Hat

I made the baker’s hat using parchment paper after seeing some tutorials on Youtube. It was easy and I was able to make both the apron and hat in few hours. 🙂
