Howdy Cowboy!

Ewan’s imagination is in full swing these days, and he is really enjoying dressing up. So I thought I would make him a new dressing up outfit for his 4th birthday.

Introducing Cowboy Jones


Here are the parts that make up the outfit.

A vest. I roughly followed this tutorial as a guide.


A pair of chaps. I used a pair of Ewan’s jeans to give me an idea of what size I should make them.


A cute little bandana with velcro so he can put it on himself.


Of course every cowboy needs a little lasso to catch his cattle.


But somehow the outfit seemed incomplete. The missing piece? A trusty horse.


Just the right thing to ride off into the sunset with.

Oh and a wee bonus, the vest is reversible so he can be a fireman too 🙂

I’m joining the “Show and Tell” party at Blue Cricket Design.
And “Make it Wear it” at The Train to Crazy.
