Amanda's Redwall Costume
For her online English class, Amanda was assigned to make a creative application project based on the book Redwall by Brian Jacques. From several options given, Amanda decided to make a costume for Martin the Warrior. She had fun sewing a tunic and hood, making a sword with her dad, and creating leg armor from old pizza boxes. (It's amazing what you can do with pizza or cereal boxes! Last year Peter created a very cool Roman soldier's kilt!) Here are a couple of pictures of Amanda and her work. After today, most of her costume is going to younger brothers, as she is also in the process of sewing a lady's medieval costume for our upcoming Medieval Feast.
