BOOK WEEK animal safari

My first book week as a school mum- note to self for next year... start prior to the day before!



Pretty proud of what I achieved! Even as it was the night before!



Even with a tail!

More importantly he LOVED it!!

Any comments on if I will learn from my disorganisation and start prior to the day before next year?

For those who wanna know-
I made normal tracksuit pants- only 2 pieces and hemmed and joined the faux fur prior to joining the centre seam.
The hoodie jumper is an Ottobre 1/2008 with 4 different colours of looped ribbons layered back on the hood. Did this at 2am this morning! (The fleece is brown not purple.)
Ears are felt sewn on. Pockets are made of the faux fur.
