My son has totally been sucked into the Wild Kratts hype. Everything in our house right now can be accomplished with 'creature powers'! Becomes extremely helpful when trying to get some chores done around the house. How many toys can the mighty lion get into the toy bin...let's find out. :)
I started searching a bit on-line to see if there were any patterns; ha ha, like I'm going to follow a pattern. Nothing really grabbed me and there was such a range from using fleece to sports cloth to felt.
I decided to go with felt. I used pictures of the Kratt Brothers show on-line to help with patch placement, and of course had to make one in each color; two kids means two creature vests. Double the chores that will get done around here. ;)
I found some disks on-line as well, that were downloadable. I am going to print those out on some cardstock so they're a little sturdier, and I wanted to make a pouch on the vest to put the disks in. I used Some clear vinyl I had leftover from making my quilting mat and put a layer of felt behind that creating two pockets. The front clear pocket will be for the creature power currently in use and the back pouch will be for disk storage.
They are already pretty excited about them. All I have left is some sizing panels and velcro on the green one and we are ready for some serious creature power action! I bought halloween costumes last fall during the clearance sales, but I wonder if this might replace my son's Jedi costume...at least for this year.
I'm linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced. Let's see what everyone else is doing in the back-to-school craze.
