Ikea cotton velvet were used. Then later on during a parents' evening we all embellished them with gold ribbon and buttons, so they really got a royal look. These embellishments are really shiny, unfortunately not well shown on the pics due to cloudy weather. Last week the kids found them in their shoes in school.
L loves to wear it. Last Sunday the whole day through. As soon as she does she turns into a king, a queen, a Sinterklaas, a princess and maybe in a month into one of the Three Kings!
