Knight Tunic Party Favor

Kids are all about dress up and make believe! Even big kids like to dress up. Actually, I’m not sure the desire ever ends for some. Anyway, I digress. For my daughter’s Queen of Hearts Party, I made these tunics and gave them to the boys as part of their party favor. Could easily be used for a Princess Party Favor as well if little boys are invited.

It was super easy to make. I bought the red felt on ebay and cut the knights templar crosses out of Avery iron-on 8 1/2 X 11 Dark T-Shirt Transfer sheets. I didn’t have to print anything. I simply cut out the cross and ironed it on to the tunic. Felt for the tunic was simply a rectangle with a neck part cut out. So that the tunic wouldn’t swing open, I sewed red satin ribbon on to the sides to tie.

Dimensions are as such. From shoulder to hem the tunic is 18 1/2″. So, double that when cutting out your rectangle. Width of the knight tunic is 13″. I started cutting the triangle for the head opening at 3 1/2″ in from the edge. So, each shoulder is 3 1/2″ wide. Remember you can always start small and cut bigger but if you start big you can’t go smaller. The side ties are sewn about 9″ up from the bottom on both sides of the tunic. Then center by eye the knights templar cross in the front.

The boys loved this tunic. I would say the older ones loved it more. So, for like 4 or 5 and up this is a perfect party favor.
