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. 🙂

Knight Costume

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.

Knight Costume

Vest

Materials required:

  • 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

Materials required:

  • Cardboard
  • Gold and silver Craft paper 
  • Red paint / Red craft paper

Shield:

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.

Sword:

Cut the cardboard in the shape of sword. Use Silver and gold craft paper to decorate.
