This morning Emily came to me & said
“Mama, I want to sew a costume!” (oh, yes!)
We decided to make a knights robe, as we all love fairy tales with brave knights & dragons.
This costume is completely kid made,
as you know Emily just turned three & she had absolutely no problem following the easy steps.
I did help to cut out some shapes, but if your little one can cut & paste then this will be great for you.
You will need:
fabric for the robe, ca. 170 x 60 cm , plus some scraps for decorating.
fabric for the crest on the front,
rope or yarn to use as the belt
fabric glue , scissors
(or,if you or an older child can sew, needle & thread.)
Fold your fabric in the middle ,
& let your little one cut a half circle into the top.
This is where the head will go through, so don’t make it too small, & don’t make it too big.
Cut out a crest out of the other fabric & let your little one decorate it by gluing fabric shapes onto it,
then glue the crest onto the front of your robe.
put it on & tie the rope or yarn around.
ps// It looks great with a crown made from colourful paper!
I hope you enjoy this!
