And I don't do sew??
After some research, aka web surfing/image googling, I decided to cut a hole for his face and make Patrick's face on top of it. I bought some felt and went to work and I have to say, I love the results. I was very impressed with myself (except when I sewed the front of the eyelashes to the back of the head. That wasn't very impressive. It's since been fixed.) I seriously love this picture. I pull it up every once in awhile and gaze it longingly, so proud of myself. True story.
I still need to do Patrick's swimsuit - lime green with purple flowers. Then we're adding pink socks (since the pants are SO SHORT) and pink mittens. We'll stuff the head and belly and be good to go.
Not bad for a homemade costume.
