Today was "Little Red Hen" day at school.
The girls have been studying about farms and where food comes from and it culminated in a day today where they dressed up as their favourite character from the story and made bread.
Of course they came home and told me they both wanted to be different characters....
So what did I do;
Cat - Fake fur overlocked around the edge then gently hand-stitched to a black long-sleeved T so it can be taken off later.
Tail made from polar fleece and fake fur.
Ears are felt stitched onto a headband - quick and easy.
Then we added a bow around her neck, and her tail as she requested, black boots and leggings and some face paint.
|Furry tails all round|
For the dog;
I traced an existing jacket and made a pattern for a loose-fitting top she could slip on and off over her head.
Added a slot for the tail to poke through, which has a wire coat hanger in it to give it shape and elastic for around her waist.
Spots are fake fur overlocked then machine sewn on.
Ears are polar fleece and felt sew onto a headband.
Collar is a woven fake leather I found at Spotlight with a black felt circle that actually has her name stitched onto it in hot pink.
There are two jean buttons with stars embossed on them on either side of the collar tag and it has a snap at the back for easy removal if required.
And of course the obligatory face paint and some leggings and boots.
