Last week, both of the kids had dress up day.
For DS, it was NAIDOC week, so he was to wear NAIDOC colours to school. He wanted a bit more though, and asked for an Aboriginal flag on his t-shirt. Since he was using his red sports tee, I didn't want to paint onto it, as it is sports week in the not too distant future.
A quick look at my felt collection produced yellow, red and black. So I cut out a small flag and stitched it onto his t-shirt for the day. Quick and easy, and the flag is there for next year should he ask again.
DD was dressing up as a nursery rhyme character, and wanted to be little miss muffet. Well, little miss muffet had a slight wardrobe deficit, so borrowed her top and skirt from little red riding hood. But she did have a new cap, apron and spider :)
The cap I made with a circle of fabric, roll hemmed the edge and sewed elastic in about 6cms from the edge (like a shower cap).
And the apron was just a rectangle, gathered a little at the top, a sash tie with velcro at the back, and a ruffle.
The spider, brown felt and wool covered dowel - quite simple really.
