Last week at school all the first graders took part in a "Book Parade" where they made a poster and got to dress as favorite book character. Liam chose the cat from The Cat in the Hat. He had never mentioned that the Cat was his favorite character but I was on board because I figured that it was an easy costume to make.
It was Liam's idea (and he did it all himself) to add the curly-cue's to the letters.
The hat and bow-tie were made with felt. I copied Dana and added a pipe cleaner frame inside the hat. Although I should have added more pipe cleaners as the hat was still a little floppy.
Do you like the blue sharpie? It was near dinner time and in my rush I lost all attention to detail. Oh well.
The whiskers are my favorite part of the costume. I think it really makes the costume. Made with pipe cleaners sandwiched between two felt circles with elastic cord.
He loved his costume. Can you tell? And how cute is Thing One next to him?
