Be a Hero :: Pinned It, Tried It … in aid of Children in Need

Posted in Me and my familyPinned It Tried ItSewing

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.

Superhero Trainers

A Superhero mask using the template from Slow Mama and a few hastily drawn lightening bolts (and seemingly hastily sewn edge stitching…so wonky!)

Superhero Mask

A felt belt and two matching wristbands, made using felt and elastic

Superhero Belt and Wristbands

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!

Superhero Cape

All added to one gymnastics leotard and a pair of leggings and we have one superhero outfit!

Superhero Wristbands

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 🙁
