This year, for Presentation night, Hugo's class is doing a performance of What does the fox say?
And the fish says 'glub'.
I made the hat using this pattern. The seller was awesome! As I purchased from America I was a little worried about it getting here in time.
It took only a little over a week, the chap posted it straight away for me. What a gent, check out his patterns.
The pattern is meant to be made up in polar fleece but I used silver vinyl.
It was tricky but not as hard as I thought it would be.
I used a piece of linen as a rajah cloth when I was pressing the seams open.
For the mouth and eyes I used satin.
All the extras have foam inside of them.
I used a cotton jersey to line it.
The pattern had great instructions for a beautiful clean finish.
For the suit I used this pattern.
The sewing should have been straight forward but my fabric choice made it a nightmare.
Avoid lamè jersey if at all possible!
Both my machines struggled, in the end my overlocker gave up completely.
I resorted to pinning, hand basting, machine basting and then sewing each seam three times with my over locker.
It was a nightmare.
The rest of his class purchased 'onesies' from eBay but we could not find a fish variation.
But the boy is happy.
Jed didn't mind it either.....
I thought my costume sewing was done but we had a few last minute tears and requests from the Twins.
Thank goodness for a sewing stash.
The show is on tomorrow night, so hopefully that is it.
