One of the things I love about sewing is being able to make things for my kids. The Wee Monsieur had a musical program at school last week and he was supposed to dress as the woodland creature of his choosing. We talked about a few different animals and finally, he had a great idea, a bat. This was a great idea because I had already made bat wings for a Halloween costume 2 years ago. Most of the costume could be black pants and a shirt, all that was needed was a hood with ears.
I used a hoodie that I knew fit well as a pattern for the bat hood. I found a great fur textured fabric and a tutorial for making bat ears online. 30 minutes later, I had a bat hood.
