Peyton turned 3 a few weeks ago.
I neglected to post photos back then. But he did get a celebration.
Morning - Balloons & Donuts
Peyton got loads of cool gifts.
He wanted a chocolate cake with "white" on the outside, colored blue.
(Frosting is just called "white" by my kids. Strange, I know.)
Scott & I made this Knight set for him.
It was totally fun to plan & create this together.
Scott was the designer of the whole thing.
The only thing I was, was the seamstress,
(& the sounding board for ideas).
The sword is made with a wooden curtain rod finial
+ a long dowel wrapped with high density foam.
Then the seamstress (me) sewed some felt to fit over the padding.
I sewed the Surcoat from felt.
I determined how to cut the front & back by laying it over a t-shirt
& sized it thusly.
The Stallion was designed & cut by the Daddy.
I hand-stitched it on.
The shield was entirely Scott's work.
He was inspired for the entire project by a fiberglass platter
that Peyton was using for a shield.
Scott took that platter & made it into a "real" shield,
with a cool paint job
& a handle & arm strap bolted onto the back.
I love the way it turned out!
We needed a brave knight around here.
A fair lady.
A rather harmless dragon.
