Kid-Sized Royalty in Crafting

02 December 2010 15:58 by SarainAkko

I've been trying to wait to post these until my children receive them this evening, but I just haven't got that sort of patience. The entire set was finished without the use of my sewing machine and some of the gifts were a LOOOOONG time in the making, so I just can't wait any longer to share!

My 2 and 4 year old like to play together and any gifts given need to be something that accommodates that.

Tonight's Chanukah theme is "Kid Sized Royalty"
(on a $1 budget, no seriously)

You may have already seen my tutorial on making a doorway play-scape castle

A Belle dress for a 4 year old princess made with this tutorial

A dashing cape for an almost 2 prince...

....who just so happens to be the champion of Chanuka.

About the gifts. All materials are re-purposed, none were purchased. Yes, the blue velvet and all the golden trim around the dress and the leopard print were in the scrap pile of a dressmaker in town. I happened by to see what she wanted to donate to a project about 6 months back and have been saving this material ever since. The yellow from the Belle dress were old sheets on their way out

So what costs $1 you ask? Just all the elastic needed for skirts, shirts and capes.

    Those are so cute! I know my daughter would LOVE to get that set for Christmas!

    Thanks Lorie, I knew my 4yo would love it but I really thought that my 2yo would be uninterested. He puts it on every morning to eat breakfast & I have to wrestle it off of him to get him dressed.
