The cat in the hat

World book day at school had to be celebrated in style this year. The children were invited to dress as one of their favourite storybook characters!!

Noah has inherited my big love of Dr. Seuss..(Alot of my knitted strangeness is inspired by his stories!) So his first choice was...The Grinch!! And in full Noah style he wanted to be head to toe in green body paint wearing only his undies! Thankfully I managed to talk him out of that one, explaining that not only was it a very chilly March, but that he would be rather exposed!! After discussing green fake fur (too itchy!!) He decided on The cat in the hat!!!

This led to another exciting trip to my favourite fabric and craft store...
Where I bought this

plenty of fleece! And orange for the grumpy fish!!!!

And after a busy weekend, I had made this..

We spent an evening testing out face paints...Noah had always been freaked out by them before, but he seemed to get in the swing of it and gave me a makeover!!

Then the big day arrived......

He walked to school in character, minus the hat though because it was windy!

On the swings on the way to school.....

Oh and as for Mummy! Well when you have my wardrobe every day is fancy dress!!
So I did lunch duty in easter bunny style..

After all if you can't beat them join them!
Oh and the update on World Book day!!! Noah came second in the most creative costume competition! According to the teachers he certainly knows how to work it!! :D The oompa loompa won though! :/
