Nothing like last minute work to get your creative juices flowing. It was the day before their Halloween party and we still had not discussed their costume. When I asked them this was their responses: Captain Hook, Peter Pan and a Pirate. I had no time to sew nor was I in the mood to sew, this is what I came up with for Captain Hook. After the party, it went into their costume bin and it still gets used for their pretend play.

What you need is a T-shirt you don’t mind cutting up or you can use a polo.
- Red Tee or polo
- Gold ribbon, Black ribbon
- Black felt for the bottom trim1. Cut the tee as shown in the picture above. Down the middle and cut the sleeves off.
- 2. I used the black felt for the bottom part of Captain hooks coat. I glued the black felt to the bottom of the Tee.3. Then glue the black ribbon down the middle. This gave it a more clean look and it covered up the raw edges.4. Next add gold ribbon and glue it over the black felt and the t-shirt. Also, glue small strips of gold ribbon in the middle area as shown above.
This captain hook costume took me about 20 minutes to complete. The pirate hat was a lot harder to make and my son didn’t even end up using it.
