Little Red Ridinghood:(5-7 year olds)

This little red riding hood costume is remakably simple. Your child can wear any warm clothing underneath, but a dress and tights looks especially good. Ifyou wish to make this outfit for a younger child, hem it or use a smaller piece of fabric.

You need:

A square of red fabric about 115cm x 115cm (45″ x 45″).

130cm (51″) of 10mm (3/8″) and wide red satin ribbon.

Directions

Finish all four sides of the fabric by narrow hemming them so that no raw edges are showing. (unless one or two sides are selvage edges – you can leave them as they are)

To make the casing*, measure and mark a line, on the wrong side of the fabric, 38cm
(15″) down from one side. (It’s best to do this down from an edge with a selvage edge.)

Fold fabric, right sides together, along this line and press.

Now stitch a line 2cm (3/4″) from the pressed edge to form the casing.

To make the hood, bring the right sides of the two corners above the casing together
and stitch a narrow seam.

Use a safety pin to weave about 130cm (51″) of ribbon through the casing.

**tip**
Thread a bead onto each ribbon end and knot it in place to prevent the ribbon
from pulling through the casing when the cape is being taken off.

Pull the ribbon to gather the neck area and tie around your child’s neck.place the hood over her head and roll it back until it fits comfortably.

Finishing touches:

Use a basket with a handle for gathering halloween treats. You can hem the edges
of a leftover piece of red fabric to use as a lining. After halloween your little
red riding hood can use the basket for toys, books or a picnic lunch.

I have made this for Amanda . It easily changes into the Queen of Hearts.

*Casing: A tunnel of fabric, usually made by folding over a cut edge or sewing an additional strip of fabric on at the cut edge. Elastic or a drawstring may be threaded through a casing.
