Ok so world book day creeps ever closer. DS wants to be Elmer the elephant. Great! Pretty mainstream character, there MUST be a costume available right? Nope, NADA! Bar one costume on etsy for nearly £50 hmm

So I'm sat here cutting coloured fabric into squares, planning to make it myself. I've never done this before, please tell me it's not that hard?! Please!

I think you need wonder web or a staple gun on top of a plain base.

Do not (repeat: DO NOT ) attempt to hand-quilt a child sized tent-ette

Sewing squares of fabric together will be fine, just make sure the fabrics aren't too stretchy. I'd be tempted to make a tabard and then get a standard elephant mask and paint it.
