It’s a delayed post this one – but I wanted to record how clever this little man of mine is.
He desperately wanted to make a Link costume from “The Legend of Zelda”. We looked it up (there are so many variations!), and he found the one he liked the most. Armed with a shopping list we hit the fabric store, and brought home 2 kinds of jersey, and some fantastic boiled wool type fabric.
He found a t-shirt he liked the fit of, and a leggings pattern, and we cut out our basic shapes. Then, he took the overlocker for a whirl.
He’s a natural. And barring a few skewy seams that needed to be corrected, he did a great job!
The tunic, was a long rectangle, folded in half with a neck cut out, and side seams sewn on the regular machine.
The hat required measuring the diamater of head his – plus a little bit as it’s supposed to be a loose fit, then cut a long triangle and sew a seam. Nothing fancy.
