One of the most creative role-playing games is probably dressing up. It is creativity, fantasy and freedom in a protected and sheltered fantasy world. By dressing up, our children have the opportunity to try their hand at different roles. The free role play is a wonderful accompaniment to one's own self.
Besides cloths and old clothes, I sew and make costumes with my children all year round. One thing is especially loved by children: the bird costume. The idea to fly freely like a bird is something wonderful and conveys a feeling of freedom. That's why I'm especially happy to flutter into your children's room together with Affenzahn.
Our dear Ann-Kathrin from Rock My Day is well known for her great DIY projects and immediately excited us when we first came across her blog. She mainly works with sustainable and natural materials and it feels like she is one step ahead every time when it comes to developing beautiful and child-friendly accessories and game ideas.
You surely know her from hers or our blog, where she has already realized many wonderful DIY projects for us. In the last year she has, among other things, created the matching Pendant for the large unicorn backpack. Here follows the step by step instruction for a bird costume suitable for the carnival season to match our beautiful Affenzahn Bird.
Fleece and coat fabric have the advantage that you do not have to clean the cut edges and are therefore also very suitable for sewing with needle and thread.
Print out the pattern and use the cutting pattern to cut all parts with an additional 1 cm seam allowance.
The patterns you need: - 1 x Cape - 2 x hood part - 2 x beak - 2 x head feathers - 17 x feathers size 1 - 17 x feathers size 2 - 17 x feathers size 3 - 13 x feathers size 4 - 13 x feathers size 5
I wish you lots of fun with sewing the cape and hope that your kid is going to have a lot of fun with dressing up!
