World book day again

My daughter chose her character herself. Not that we have been reading any Angelina ballerina recently but that's what she chose. Luckily not too much sewing to do this year as we already had some suitable items... Phew!
I made a hairband with structured ears attached and then a tail on an elasticated waistband. My boy had to have a tail too and they have both been requesting whiskers ever since! A simple outfit but should become a good staple in the dressing up box.

More bubble wands.....

A couple more wands I made. The last stage of production... lacquer drying on the line. This might make a great birthday present for spring and summer birthdays.

Frozen sing-a-long

It was the morning of the Frozen sing-a-long that my daughter had been invited to and I still hadn't bought or made a costume. My daughter was desperate for something to wear and was getting rather upset that we didn't have anything. My wonderful friend took the kids to the park and I quickly stitched this up before my daughter went off. By no means impressive but nice to know how quickly you can produce something when you put your mind to it. Unfortunately you can't see the silver foil printed Cape which my friend had printed as a length of fabric... And quite frankly made the costume. So hats off to her.
I had never seen the film at this point but I'm told by my daughter that her and her friend had the best costumes of all. Apparently everyone else turned up as clones of each other in the Disney store costume. Job done!
