Shepherd costumes can be easily made from men's old shirts. Just cut off the button plackets on both fronts, cut off the collar and trim the front and neck edges so they are rounded. Cut the sleeves in half or make them 3/4 length. If you have time you can sew a strip of contrasting fabric up one front across the neck area and down the other front and hem the sleeves. Use the contrasting fabric to make a tie belt. If you don't have time to finish the edges just use clothes line for a belt or any other tie belt that you have available. To make a headpiece: cut a piece of fabric into a square. Tie a piece of rope or clothes line into a circle large enough to fit a child's head. Place the fabric onto the child's head. Add the rope circle to hold it in place.
