Homemade Costume: Cloak

I made this cloak for my girl back in 2004 for a halloween party. You guessed it, she was Little Red Riding Hood. 3 years later, this cloak is still one of my children's favorite 'toy'. If you read my post a few days ago on "
Motivating Your Child to Brush Their Teeth", you will notice my son wearing that same cloak. Of course he is not Little Red Riding Hood. It's his superhero cloak!

Kids just love playing dress up. This cloak is really simple to do. Well... I did screw up a bit trying to figure it out. But as you can see, my screw up also looks okay. If you want to make one for your children, click on the link below for the instructions:



  1. Hi L---my little one hasn't gotten into dressing up yet. Likes to dress her dolls, tho (smile).

    Thanks for sharing this!

  2. thanks for the tip! will use it - i am sure my girls will love it too.

  3. oo.. i remember rumaging through my mum's clothes to play dress up! My favourite was this pink skirt (knee length for her but floor sweeping for me) and every time I wore it, I'd imagine I was a princess with my many stuffed toys as my loyal subjects. Hahahah!

  4. I don't think you screw up wor, nice work.


Don't go without saying something. I would love to read your comments. BUT no junk comments please.
