Book Character Day

Heads up – that awesome pattern deal ends today – grab it!  I still can’t believe how much you get for such a low price!!  I have plans to sew dolls, pjs, maybe the suitcase, tshirts, and go from there…


I just have to boast that I think I won some sort of awesome mom award with my recent knit sewing skills.  I’ve been loving knit and the Go-To Legging Pattern (I rave about it HERE).  Well, my second grader came home and informed me that the next day was Dress Like a Book Character Day – what?!  I need advanced notice for these type of things!

Then I recalled the shirt I own…and how it matches a certain doll that happens to have a book which technically makes her a “book character”…

The only problem – she’s wearing teal leggings.  Well, awesome mom me was all, no problem, we’ll just make some – isn’t that funny – like what kind of world am I in that I can just whip up a pair of leggings on a whim?!  I love it, and I love that they are so easy, and that I happen to have teal knit fabric in my stash.

Turned out great! I made her full leggings instead of capris like McKenna because it’s cold out.  She was worried about her shoes – they’re not a perfect match, but we could only do so much :)

And since we’re on the topic of Book Character Day, I’m sure you’re wondering what the other kids went as – – Kindergartners dress up as an Animated Literacy character, so she chose Mimi Mermaid, reusing a halloween costume (found at a garage sale – it’s a dance outfit I think) from a few years ago:

 I thought a french braid across the head and swirled into a bun was appropriate and it turned out cute:

And my 4th Grader claimed that he had written a book about himself, so he was just going as himself.  Classic 4th grade boy thinking.  I don’t have a picture of him today – but here’s a random one of him and Trevor fixing our Wii (the problem turned out to be a battleship game piece shoved into it – no wonder it wouldn’t accept a disc!)

Do your kiddos dress up for school dress-up days??
