These were so fun and easy to make! I used the tutorial found HERE. Great instructions, with multiple sizes. I did alter it a bit though. I didn't like how the ties were done in the pattern so I left it off and made everyone an obi (belt). I made a kimono for me also. I had to figure out the measurements to make it bigger, since the pattern I used was for kid sized kimonos. Mine is not pictured because, well, no real reason, I just didn't take a picture of it. =] The
boys picked out their fabric. We found these prints at Hobby Lobby. I know Joann's has some also but they were a bit higher in price than I was willing to pay. These were affordable, and fitting to our theme!
|Moose (8) chose this combination for his kimono.|
|N (10) picked out this authentic looking fabric.|
|The fire kimono was chosen by Zoom (5). He thought it was super cool!|
|The girl got fabric from my stash. Not super Japanese but cute none-the-less!|
|Excuse the low quality, I forgot my real camera!|
