Handmade Shepherd Costume

So here it is! One Ikea red single bed sheet, one Ikea taupe pillowcase, one old red checked tea towel, a lot of ironing, one temperamental sewing machine and a couple of hours work have created a pretty respectable shepherds costume…. What do you think?



Making this costume brought back great memories of my childhood nativity plays. I was always the narrator. I think once Angel Gabriel – who was also the narrator. Never, ever Mary which was gutting every year! As per my last post my sisters were angels in their first ever nativity play at pre-school but after that Sister number 2 was cast as the Donkey for three or four years in a row!

Missy’s play is in a few weeks time, so I can’t wait for us to start building family memories of our own.
