The Last LINK

It's always good when your child is happy with his Halloween costume. This was a special request for this year.

It turned out great and he is VERY happy with it.

Do you know who Link is?? {he's from the video game Zelda}.

I started with THIS pattern, I used the shape of the top without the points at the bottom. I cut it on the fold so there is no seam down the front. I used fleece so I wouldn't have to finish every edge. There are several different versions of Link, I used the simplest one I could find. he has a shirt under the green one that looks kindof like chain, so I added a "V" at the neck and on each of the sides to make it look layered with the chain fabric.

Then I used some leather like material and made a sword holder. {it doesn't work great, but it will work for a few nights!}. The sword is kind of heavy so it pulls the holder down.

I found this cute leather bag at Hobby Lobby and Tanner made it to go with his costume.

I used the hat from the same pattern. I used fleece with fusible interfacing. I just serged the edges inside, it worked perfectly. His only complaint is that I made him get his hair cut and now it's not long enough to look like Link. {sorry!}

....add some church pants, and a pair of boots from the thrift store and you get one HAPPY LINK!

Happy Halloween! Hope it's a GREAT weekend. Stay Safe!
