All the kiddies (and some parents) dressed up in their finest pirate gear and my sister-in-law did a fabulous job on the pirate ship birthday cake.
|Grace doing her best pirate impersonation, big sister was|
being difficult and didn't want to dress up.
|The yummy Pirate Ship Cake, fantastic job Robyn!!!|
To make the waist coat I used the jumpsuit he was going to wear as a template. First I lay the jumpsuit on top of one piece of felt and folded the arms behind to hide them. Then I traced around the suit to create the back of the vest:
Then I used the back of the vest to cut out the 2 front piece's for the front by folding it in half and laying it on another piece of felt and cut:
|I forgot to mention that I marked where the arm hole started with tailor's chalk|
Now I just pinned and sewed it all together. For the hat i found one using google that was for a colouring competition, printed it out twice, pinned, cut and sewed it together. Now as i made this the morning of the party, in between feeds and getting ready, i forgot to take a few pictures but i traced the skull and bones onto some interfacing with a laundry marker, cut it out and hand sewed it while in the car on the way:
And here he is, the littlest pirate at the party, too cute!!!!!!
|He slept thru the entire party lol!!!!|
