Today is Children In Need and Charlotte’s school are taking part by asking all of the children to come to school dressed as a hero for the day. Cue panic as I realise that we have nothing but princess, fairy, pirate and Halloween dressing up clothes and accessories in this house!
A quick trawl of pinterest later and I had formulated a plan. Charlotte’s outfit was made up as follows…..
One set of trainer flashes as inspired by the tutorial on I am Momma Hear Me Roar. I used some of the glittery foam sheets that I had left over from the Strictly Come Dancing score cards that I made recently.
A Superhero mask using the template from Slow Mama and a few hastily drawn lightening bolts (and seemingly hastily sewn edge stitching…so wonky!)
A felt belt and two matching wristbands, made using felt and elastic
A cape made from a thrifted t-shirt. I cut along the overlocked/serged side seams, cut off the sleeves and cut around the neckline. I then added some iron-on hook and loop at the neck. Job done!
All added to one gymnastics leotard and a pair of leggings and we have one superhero outfit!
Sadly the superhero outfit hasn’t come with any superpowers…she’s fallen over in the playground at school and has a massive egg on the side of her head. Poor super Charlotte 🙁
