Make Elf Hogwarts Robes
Use a 3/8″ seam allowance.
Cut two robe pieces. Cut the front piece in half down the center.
Pin robe pieces together, lining them up at the shoulders and underarm/side seam. Sew the side seam, underarm and shoulder seam. Be sure to backstitch at each start and stopping point.
Clip the seam allowance at the corner under the arm. Trim seam allowance down to 1/4″ and turn right side out. Press with a cool iron or leave under a pile of books to help the robes stay flat. Be careful to not melt the felt.
Elf Scarf Dimensions
Cut a strip of felt 12″ long by 1″ wide. Then cut the contrast felt into little rectangles about .75″ by 1″.
Cut fringe on the short ends of the scarf, about 1″ into the felt. Then glue contrast pieces on top.
