American-Indian Costume #2 February 21, 2012

Filed under: costumes — faithandfamily @ 5:26 pm

In a post I wrote about a year and a half ago, I shared about the American-Indian costume I made my daughter. When I made my daughter’s costume, I bought twice as much fabric as I needed, so I figured that, at some point, I’d make another one. A lady at church asked me several months ago if I could use some fringe trim, and I told her I’d love to have it to make my niece, Hanna, a costume. I knew I couldn’t pull it off in time for Christmas, so my new goal was to make it in time for her 4th birthday, which is in late May. I bought some ribbon trim the last time I was in JoAnn’s, and I finished the costume last night.

I’ll add a few feathers that she can tuck into her hair, a bow and arrow set from Amazon, and this beautiful picture book about Sacagawea. Hopefully it will be a fun birthday gift!

    My daughter is 2 years old and I want to make something like this for her. Is there anyway that you could share this pattern with me so I could make her one? I have looked all over and have not found one I liked. I realize I would have to adjust for her size. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
