You’ve already seen the firefighter costume that I made for my son for Christmas.
Here is the rest of the set.
First, a king costume. I made the crown out of scrap material from my stash using this tutorial. There are about a thousand cape tutorials out there. I looked at a few, made a pattern of my own, and winged it, adding a fur collar.
Remnant (sweet! remnant discount) of purple velvety-type fabric, about a yard: $1.67
Fake Fur, 3 inch cut $0.65
Total Cost: $2.32
Second, a construction worker costume. I made the tool belt based on this tutorial. The fabric is from my stash – I have been hanging on to this Michael Miller “wheels” fabric for a while, trying to figure out what to do with it. The tools were part of a set that he already had. The construction hard hat was $1 at the thrift store.
Double fold black bias tape $2.50 (you could totally use scrap material instead of bias tape. I’m just lazy like that)
Construction hard hat $1.00
Total Cost $3.50
So, for the set of three, the cost was about $20. By far the biggest expense was for the firefighter costume. I have plans to add a chef’s hat to the set, but not before Christmas. I need to turn my attention to finishing the felt food set that I have started.
