Pirate Izzy Costume Tutorial (from Jake and the Never Land Pirates)

Every pirate needs a best buddy.
Izzy is Jake's best buddy on my kids favorite TV show Jake and the Never Land Pirates.


They work together to find treasures and gold doubloons and to fight off Captain Hook.
They are pretty much inseparable just like Mackenzie and Wesley.
Once Wesley decided to be Jake from Jake and the Never Land Pirates
Mackenzie just had to be Izzy.
Here's a peek at how we made her costume complete with Izzy's special pixie dust carrier.

My Pirate Izzy

the basics-
purple leggings- Walmart $3.50
pink bandanna- Goodwill $1.00
pink pirate shirt- Goodwill $1.00
brown boots- Target

And of course Izzy needs her special pixie dust that Tinkerbell gave her...
just in case of an emergency!

Here's a quick tutorial for the pixie dust holder.
It's super easy.

supplies-
-yellow felt
-piece of leather string or yarn
-rice
-clear hair tie or rubber band

Step 1-
Cut a square out of some yellow felt and place a small amount of rice in the center.

Step 2-
Gather the felt around the rice.

Step 3-
Secure with a clear hair tie.

Step 4-
Wrap the leather string around the felt pouch and tie to secure.
Then measure the correct length to fit around your child's neck and tie a knot at the end to secure.

Ta da!
The perfect pixie dust holder.

Now grab your pirate buddy and get ready to find some treasure.
Yo Ho Ho!
