I'm pleased that the Harry Potter obsession has lasted and that they re-used the cloaks that we made for them last year, just changing up the characters a little bit.
Badges were safety-pinned on so that they can change characters/houses whenever they want.
Last year as Hermione Granger and Harry Potter
We used this pattern for the robes and they were pretty easy (with Handy Hubby's help)
I reckon this pattern would make for a good kimono-type thing as well.
