With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to make a few outfits for the kids on the cheap, and something they would wear again. I used a couple of black tops we already had and a bit of sewing to create these spider web and pumpkin outfits. Team the tops with a pair of black or grey trousers and you’ve got an easy and vaguely stylish Halloween look!
My Little Button has taken to wearing her bath towel as a superhero cape of late, so I thought I’d make her an actual super ‘H’ cape in case she wanted to practise her superhero skills in public, with clothes on!
You will need:
- 1/2 metre of fabric for the backing
- 1/2 metre of fabric for the front
- Matching felt to the front fabric for the letter
1. Begin by drawing and cutting out the pattern as above. Place the template on folded fabric. The measurements I used for my 18-month-old were 62cm for the total length of the cape and 34cm for the width at the bottom. The cape gradually gets smaller as it goes up towards the neck.
