Little Pocahontas Costume
Total Time 5 hours Ages toddler

It's Disney's Pocahontas!

Prep Time: 5 hours

What you'll need

  • A long sleeved shirt in a shade to match your child's skin (I used beige)
  • A plain shift in a light color to look like suede
  • A plain head band to match the shift
  • Native American beads (or a beaded necklace)
  • 1 small bag
  • 2 round medallions with a Native American look (check Michael's craft store)
  • An orange scrunchie
  • About 3 yards of light brown fringe
  • One pair of booties, boots, or socks
  • A long black wig
  • A small bag of feathers
  • 1/2 yard of 1/4 inch elastic

How to make it

  1. Pin the fringe in place on the shift in the same pattern I used.

  2. Sew the fringe to the shift. Time saving tip: If you would like to cut down the time just hot glue it.

  3. Take some fringe and sew or hot glue it to elastic so you can stretch it over the boot or shoe.

  4. Sew the beads around the neck of the shirt. (My daughter was very young so I sewed the beads down for safety.) Time Saving Tip: You can just buy an inexpensive necklace if you are not worried about you child swallowing the beads.

  5. Sew the medallion in place on the shift or stitch it to the necklace.

  6. Sew or glue the feathers under the medallion.

  7. Sew some beads, the medallion, and feathers to the headband. Time saving tip: Again, you can just hot glue this.

  8. Put the costume on and put the scrunchie around the arm. You may need to put a stitch or two in to tighten it.

  9. Have a Happy Halloween.
