Instructions

  1. 1

    Go to your charity shop or costume supplier to look for a light blue dressing gown that fits your child.

  2. 2

    Sew, glue or tape an embroidered pattern on to the sleeves of the robe. The pattern should appear about halfway up the arm for each sleeve. Also attach the embroidered pattern around the neckline of the costume.

  3. 3

    Put the dressing gown on the child and tie it firmly, but not too tightly. Wrap a large black leather or felt belt around the child's midriff. Connect or tie it around the child's back.

  4. 4

    Pull on knee-length socks and make sure they go up as high as they can. Put simple black shoes on the child's feet.

  5. 5

    Find a piece of string and paint it black if necessary. Cut a circle out of a felt fabric sheet and cut a small hole to insert the string through. Make sure the string is long enough to accommodate the child's neck. Tie the string in the back to create the Katara necklace.
