Dragon hoodie

Almost Halloween.... this doesn't mean much in the Netherlands since we don't celebrate this holiday. Still our boys can come dressed up to their international gymclass for a Halloween celebration this week.

Little rascal asked to be a dragon, but at the same time he wasn't to keen on the dressing up at all. Tricky. On top of that the kids should still be able to do their forward rolls and swing from the bars, so the clothes have to be comfy.

I'm so glad my little guy asked to be a dragon, that was an easy fix. From two old black sweaters I made one dragon hoodie . It's comfy, easy to move in, not over the top dressed up and there's still a hint of dragon in there. We have a winner!

Oh yes, I did make it a bit oversized so he can share with his big brother. Just roll up the sleeves and he's good to go. 


  1. That's a fun one. totally daily wear and perfect for a more costumy thing.

  2. Super gedaan, hoe deed je de kap, ik zie de spikes, maar kan me niet echt een beeld vormen hoe die zitten, vallen ze niet om?

    1. Thx! Ik heb ze verstevigd met n laagje vlieseline. Het gaat nu net, waarschijnlijk had ik de spikes beter van zwarte fleece kunnen maken ipv tricot, dan zou het zeker blijven staan. Ze zijn nu met de hand opgenaaid omdat ik de capuchon ook heb gerecycled en geen zin had in tornen. Anders zou je ze gewoon met de naad van de twee capuchondelen mee kunnen naaien.

  3. Helemaal geweldig! Mooie recyclage.
