Joseph is totally into superheros. Currently he loves Tree Fu Tom from CBeebies. Instead of Easter eggs (as I was sure he wouldn't be in short supply of those) I decided I wanted to make him a Tree Fu Tom inspired costume. I found the tutorial for the mask here and the tutorial for the superhero cuffs here
I decided to try and make both reversible so he could chose if he liked to be a different superhero. So with this set you could have Tree Fu Tom, leaf detailed mask and cuffs or ...
turn it over and have a light green star mask. Take your pick my boy, or mix n match to your hearts content :)
He was very pleased.
I also whipped up a tunic as Tree Fu Tom doesn't have a cape (he also doesn't have a mask or leaf details on his cuffs but hey I was elaborating upon a concept) and a belt.
Here he's showing me how the laser works - 'You just press it here'
Love this one - that's my boy :)
I also made a set for Ben - of course. He has a blue star set or..
.. flip it over and you get a red star set. These match the capes they got from Izzy's Paty last year. Also with Ben's set I gave myself a pat on the back for thinking about using red thread on the top spool of my machine and blue on the bottom one so each side had the complementary thread - I know, I'm really clever :)
