Arrr Matey - Playing Dress Up

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Making dress up clothes for Gavin is something I've wanted to do for quite some time. With all the fabric and sewing knowledge I have on hand, it seems a waste to buy these sorts of things for him. But as with many other ideas I've had in the last few months, I just never seem to get it done! I did get a couple fun accessories made for him the other day though. 

I pinned these two photos on pinterest quite a while ago:

I plan on making a vest too because that's just too cute, but for now I threw together a simple felt hat and eye patch. 

Gavin improvised and used his toy screwdriver as a sword. He has already mastered sayings like "Ay-ay captain" and "Arrrr matey".

I know! I would love to take this costume to the next level, but right now there just isn't any time!
