Directions

  1. Step 1

    Cut a purple fabric cape to fit your child from her neck to her knees. Attach the Velcro strips to the top of the cape and the shoulders of the long-john top.

  2. Step 2

    Cut out a purple felt bow. Attach to front of shirt with Velcro.

    Cut a thumbhole in each of the socks to make hand mitts.

  4. Step 4

    Glue a strip of periwinkle felt onto the headband to cover it.

  5. Step 5

    Glue a triangle of lavender fabric to the center of the headband so it falls over your child's forehead in a "V."

  6. Step 6

    Cut out ears freehand using periwinkle felt and light-blue felt. Glue the ears to top of the headband.

  7. Step 7

    Cut a few short lengths of blue yarn, tie in a knot at bottom, and glue to headband for Periwinkle's tuft of hair.

    To make the magical goody bag and magic wand, first cut a top hat from the black construction paper and glue to the white bag. Glue a strip of purple paper around the top hat.
