Hello folks! Yesterday I mentioned that we were going to have a themed day at camp. Well, today was Cartoon Day. I came dressed as Mini Mouse. She's not my favorite cartoon character by a long shot, but she was the simplest one to pull off in a short amount of time. I whipped a pair of ears together using cardboard, felt and embroidering thread. For the "dress", (which I know should have been red), I used a trusty old skirt and sewed on some white felt dots that I had cut out. I think the whole thing went together fairly well. The only hiccup was that to keep the ears from flopping down, I had to sew them together, making for a rather tall Mini Mouse at 6'6. The kids got really into the whole theme and looked adorable. I wish I could share the photos with you, but for privacy sake, I cannot. I will tell you that one in particular is heart melting.
Here's a photo and a run down of my festive ensemble...
Modified Skirt as Dress: Target
Ears: By Me
Here's a little close up of the ears that I made. Bad lighting + shiny kitchen table makes for a terrible photo.
My favorite thing that I made today was a large, plush carrot that I will be using as a pin cushion. You can't tell how big it is from the photos, but from the tip of the carrot to the end of the leaves is about 2 feet. It's super cute and I love it. Plus it's the first plushy-type thing I've ever made.
