I hear you have a problem.
Your little one wants to be, no has to be, Jake from the Disney show Jake and the Neverland Pirates for Halloween.
You go to all the costume stores and soon realize they don't make that costume.
Here's a simple tutorial to make your little man into a pirate in no time.
And not just any pirate...
Jake the Neverland Pirate.
white shirt: Children's resale shop $1
red bandanna: already had (but I think you can buy them at Michaels)
blue pants: garage sale $0.50
black (adult) t-shirt- my dad's
brown boots- his sister's old boots (from Target)
Cut off the sleeves of your shirt (if it is long sleeved) and cut some slits to make it look old
Also cut a "v" shape out of the collar.
Then I used some black embroidery floss to stitch it up in a criss cross pattern
Cut the bottom off an old black t shirt and then cut it to make one long strip. I used this to tie around his waist.
Dana from MADE has an awesome vest tutorial that I used for the base of Jake's vest then I just added the collar, some trim and buttons and voila...
the perfect Jake vest!
Put it on your little Pirate and start looking for some hidden treasure!
And be sure to check back tomorrow to see how we made Pirate Izzy's costume and pixie dust bag.
