Ahoy there, me hearties!

Crafty, games, kids, let's pretend

It seems that all that sailing has got them in pirate mode again. So time for an improvised pirate outfit. This post deals with the pirate hat. Not quite a Jack Sparrow effort, more of the deck hand but still enough to keep them ‘quiet’ for an hour or so.

¬†For this, you’ll need an old child’s tshirt. One you can’t get the chocolate or fruit stains out of, or something too well worn to give to the charity shop is perfect.

So, scissors at the ready….

  1. Cut the sleeves off at the seam (but keep them for use later – they make good buccaneer boot tops, folded over the top of wellies!)
  2. Cut across the shoulder seams
  3. Cut down one side seam
  4. That should leave it looking like this…

Then, take the bottom of the tshirt (shown as top in the picture) and place that across their forehead, pulling the loose ends behind and down, to tie at the nape of their neck.

Shiver me timbers!

Pirate hat ahoy
