No-Sew Knight Costume

For Nathan's Castle party, I decided to make some easy no-sew felt Knight tunics for the kids to wear. In the past knight birthday parties, I used a silver plastic table cloth for knight armor, but thought felt would be just as easy to cut and would last longer for the kids.

I bought grey 72 in. wide felt at the fabric store. I only bought a yard, and it was on sale for $3. It was a great deal! I cut the fabric into 12x36 in. pieces (so I was able to get 6 costumes out of the yard of fabric).

I folded it in half and cut a hole in the middle for the head, plus a slit a few inches down the back so it was easier to put on. (see picture)

To make the fleur-de-lis on the front, I used my silhouette cameo. If you don't have one of these machines, you can cut something out by hand, but I would definitely make it a simpler shape.

I first cut a 10x10 piece of shiny fabric I had leftover from making a superhero cape long ago. I cut a piece of heat n' bond to match and ironed it on the back of the fabric. Then I was able to put it through my machine. Once it cut the material, I just pulled it off and ironed it on. It was very simple.

I cut slits of red and black felt to use as belts. Just tie them around the waist and you have a very simple knight costume for halloween or your next knight party.
