Pin It You would think in this day and age that the only reason to make a costume at this time of the year would be for Halloween, and in 99.9% of cases that's probably true, but for us an event came along that required a little bit of sewing and a whole lot of reminiscing. You see, my eldest son finished school last week and one of the final events thrust upon was a "Heroes and Villains" dress up day. He quickly decided on "Finn" from "AdventureTime" and it really was handy that he could borrow his brother's hat that we'd made some time ago.
This is a really simple hat to make and the instructions and links are all available in our "Fabulous Adventure Time Finn Hat" blog post.
That meant that all we needed for the costume was the Finn backpack, a blue shirt and shorts, plus black shoes and rolled up white socks. We had everything but the backpack....
I was very fortunate that in my fabric stash, I had some left over green fleece that we'd used to make a Legend of Zelda Link Hat and so it was that in between looking at photos of my eldest when he was first starting school, I took my fabric and the fantastic instructions from "The Local Fat Kid" and got sewing. It was quick and easy to make and before we knew it, we had our very own Finn backpack...
...together with our very own school leaving Finn
My, doesn't time fly!
