The Cat in The Hat Costume

Hello my friends.  Hope you're having a wonderful day. Today, I wanted to share with you The Cat in the Hat costume I made for my son.  Today is "Dress Up as a Storybook Character Day" at my son's school and since his favorite book is The Cat in The Hat, I decided to make a costume for him. 

For the hat I used a tutorial I found on Pinterest.  The lady at did an amazing job explaining how to make the hat.   I just had to make minor modifications to her design in order to fit my son's head.  

The Cat in The Hat t-shirt was my own idea.  I used an old black t-shirt, red and white felt.  I drew a pattern free-hand for The Cat in the Hat white belly and then transferred and cut it onto white felt.  Then I sewed the white felt to the t-shirt. Yup, that simple!

My son loved it and couldn't wait to wear and show off his Cat in The Hat costume today.  Hope you like it too! Thanks for stopping by my little blog and hope to see you soon!

Challenge 5: Spooky Nights

Hello friends, 

Hope you're having a wonderful beginning of the Fall Season! I'm enjoying the cooler temperature although I've been fighting a nasty cold since last week and still feeling under the weather. Being sick has kept me home a lot, so I have been spending some time on Pinterest and also I've been working on a couple of craft projects including a card for this week's challenge at SKdigis.
Let me start by saying that this week's challenge is sponsored by Barb from BugBites who has included one of Sonia's design in her recently released stamp set.  Isn't that amazing? This week's challenge is to create a craft/card/layout using any of the cute Ghost digis Sonia has in her shop. I created a card using the Scared Ghost digital image which can be bought here. Sentiment is computer generated. To check the rest of the DT creations or to link up your creations for a change to win this week's prize, please visit us at SKdigis.  

Hope you come and play along with us this week and thanks for stopping by!
