My 5 year old daughter came up with this plan and I think she did a fabulous job! We were very lucky and ran across a family that was getting rid of the cow fabric and black fringe at a garage sale. It was leftover from a cowboy party. If you see though it’s not very much to buying a limited quantity at a fabric store won’t be too much either, especially if you bring your coupons or pay attention to the sales.
Here’s my little Jessie! She was so proud of her creation. And I truly mean it, she’s the one who came up with the costume. I think having your child involved in the making of it makes it so much for meaningful and at times can save money for your family. Plus I think it shows up more and more in playtime and in various forms.
