Okay, so one of the things that inspired me to start this blog was the blog party on Just-a-Girl's blog. Not only did this make me want to start blogging, it also put me in the crafty spirit.
So, I had to release this crafty energy. And what a perfect opportunity: I needed a Reading Day costume. (Teachers and staff dress up as a book character and the entire school day is devoted to reading. A librarian's dream day!)
Here I come to save the day! Or, maybe not! :-)
The materials I used:
Yes, that is a Christmas tree skirt, a.k.a. the cape. The sparkly stickers inside the stocking were used on the "cape" and the white fuzzy sock was cut into strips. I hand-stitched them onto the shirt for the trim. Okay, so it's not the best craft in the world but I did make it myself. (For the most part!)
