Warning to all family members...if you want to see her in her costume for the first time in person, don't read any further!
Here it is!!
I could just die from the cuteness.
I made the headband like the Cinderella one on Make It and Love It here.
I made the wrist bands and belt using the same concept, except that they attach with metal snaps so she can't rip them off :)
The top was a "make it up as I go along" project for sure. I cut a rectangular piece out of a knit shirt and used stitch witchery to hide the raw edges. I put 3 metal snaps on the back so it would be easy to get on. Then I tried it on her and it fell off. Oops. So I went back in and put a piece of elastic along the top seam to make it tighter. Perfect!
I printed the Wonder Woman symbol off the internet, traced it onto Heat-n-Bond, and ironed it onto the shirt. I sewed clear bra straps onto it to make sure it stayed up when she's crawling.
I made the bottom part from a diaper cover that came with a skirt and appliqued white stars all over it. The "boots" are a pair of socks from Target. I cut about an inch off the top, then added a strip of white knit fabric along the top and a stripe along the front.
I made her golden lasso (that makes men tell the truth, apparently) by braiding several strands of gold yarn together.
And there you have it - the cutest Wonder Woman ever!
