Captain Findlay

I seem to have started a tradition of making Finn a dressing up costume for his birthday, when he was two he got the epic dinosaur and the last year it was the super hero cape and mask. This year I went light touch with this pirate ensemble...

I bought some lovely thick black felt from eBay and found a template on Pinterest. A quick sketch and embroider of a skull and crossed cutlass and it was done. The eye patch has a simple, hand stitched pleat to create a 3D shape and the some thin elastic - I would have preferred black elastic but had none in!

The lovely cutlass is from Cox & Cox - there are cheaper out there but this is good quality and hopefully will last more than one swashbuckle!
