Avast, ye scurvy dogs! Are ye ready to see it?! Here be my homemade pirate hat.
Okay, okay. Enough of that silly pirate talk. Henry has his first Summer Fete and Sport Day next week and the poster reads:
Just for fun, come dressed as a pirate!
As a wannabe homemade mum, this is the stuff my dreams are made of – yesss people, I’m talking homemade kids costumes here! My first stop was the library, where I picked up a book on Sewing for Children by Emma Hardy. It has 35 step-by-step projects, one of which is a pirate hat. The hat was easy peasy to make – read my lips: e a s y p e a s y – super quick and no sewing machine required. All you need is some embroidery floss, a needle, two buttons and some black and white felt for an instant fancy dress costume.
And here’s Henry reading his pirate book whilst wearing the hat. Maybe I’m biased, but doesn’t he look cuter than a bugs ear in it? All that’s left to make now is a little necktie to complete the look… ‘n I be havin’ just th’ perfect scrap ‘o fabric from ’tis project here!
