Sweet, simple, and utterly classic. This Halloween your brave kiddo will stand up to hungry wolves and itchy store-bought costumes with our Primary DIY Little Red Riding Hood! Using cozy reusable Primary favorites, this easy look will be done in a snap. Oh my, what big crafting skills you have!
For Little Red Riding Hood, start with our long sleeve stripe twirly dress in cherry and white tights:
For the cape/hood:
- Use a lightweight cotton fabric or jersey knit fabric in red. Cut the fabric in a large rectangle, the length you'd like the cape including the height of the hood.
- Fold the fabric in half lengthwise and use fusible hem tape to iron the top hood seam together.
- If you'd like finished edges for the cotton fabric, fold the edges in and use the fusible hem tape to iron the edges in. If using jersey knit fabric, the edges don't tend to fray, so the raw edges are fine.
- Cut small slits along the neckline and thread a white ribbon through. Pull the fabric together a bit with the ribbon, and tie loosely around the collar.
For the apron:
- Cut a rectangle from white felt and glue white ribbon to the sides. Glue white lace around the edges of the apron as an additional option.
- Tie the apron around the waist.
