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!
