You'd think that having had World Book Day last year (and sending Max to school in a hastily purchased knight's costume - "lots of books have knights in them Max") that I might have been a tad more organised this year. Well you'd be wrong - which will come as a surprise to most of my friends as I am officially "the organised one". Hmmpphh....
So here I am sitting trying to thing I something that I can rustle up in about a week, from scratch. Hmmpphh again.
I asked Max what he wanted to be. Various Mr Men books were produced. I countered with Burglar Bill - "I don't want to - everyone will laugh at me". So we have settled* on "Max" from "Where the Wild Things Are" - partly because of the whole "Max" thing and mainly because I thought it would be quite easy to find a cheap plain onesie and then make a crown and a tail. After 30 minutes of scouring the interweb I am realising I may have to make a onesie from scratch. Double, possibly triple, hmmpphh!! I feel a trip to the local fabric shop coming on along with the realisation that separate trousers and top may be the way to go.
Let's face it, it needs to top this hat that I made for him last year
Please come back to find out whether I gave up on this as a bad job and sent him to school as a knight again!!
* For "settled" read "Max this is what you are having"
