Of course, it doesn't help that the kiddo keeps changing his mind on his costume. Just this morning, he said something about time-traveling. Last I knew, he wanted to be kitsune Spartan archer. Although if he wants to go time traveling, I'm going to demand he add a bit of steampunk to his costume.
In order to at least have begun his costume, I pulled out my trusty glue gun and some bits from around the house to make a quiver for the kiddo.
Glue gun and sticks
Brown felt (leftover from another project)
Cardboard tube and stopper (from the pile for the bunny to chew on)
I found a large tube with a plastic stopper on the end and cut out the felt to fit around it, then glued it into place. The end was folded and glued down.
I was going to try to do something fancy with the top, but decided simplicity was a better idea. I put down a line of glue and folded the felt down, then cut it to size.
The straps were two inches wide and cut to the length of my remaining felt. I glued one strap to each end of the quiver so the kiddo could tie it on. I'll add a few safety pins to make sure it stays on all night.
The kiddo has a couple play crossbow bolts and a few nerf arrows that will fill the quiver. I'm not having him take the bow as it will just get in the way. But now he has a quiver that he can play around with. Hmm, maybe I need to make myself a shield now before he takes over the house....
