Assembling a Little Bo Peep Costume
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep,
And doesn’t know where to find them.
Leave them alone, and they’ll come home,
Bringing their tails behind them.
Making a Little Bo Peep costume at home isn’t very hard.
You’ll need a crooked cane. Here’s how I made mine:
-Bend a wire coat hanger into a crooked cane shape.
-Cut batting into a long strip, about four inches wide, and wrap it around the hanger as thickly as you’d like. Hot glue the edges down.
-Place the cane on two layers of brown fabric and trace the outline in chalk as two separate pieces, the cane’s head and the straight body. The ribbon will cover the area where these meet.
-Cut around your outline, leaving a small seam allowance. Sew the two layers of fabric together. Turn them right side out.
-Carefully cram the padded hanger into the fabric casing.
-Tie a ribbon in a bow at the place where your fabric pieces meet. Dab a little hot glue on to keep the ribbon in place and your edges hidden.
