Book Week dress up

Athelstone, Aust...






This is Max the Cat (with good friend Iron Man).

My daughter, Elsie, LOVES cats. For Book Week here in Australia kids get dressed up as their favorite book character, so of course Elsie chose a cat as her dress up.

Max doesn’t have a tail in the story, so I thought a onesie would do the trick for the costume. I made the hood deeper so the face can be pulled down. As Elsie is only 6 this pattern was quite large. Length has been taken out of the torso, arms and legs, and it’s made to the smallest size.

Material Notes

This is recycled fabric. It was born out of a double-sided, two colour polar fleece blanket. Such a lucky find from the op shop, and the perfect colour for a ginger cat.
