My little wally !!

Morning peeps!!
Phew!! its been a busy couple of days!!! it has been children in need all the way this week and I have loved it!! Mo needed to go dressed up as his favourite book/ cartoon character and he chose Where's wally 
( waldo for my friends over the pond!) so I had to get to work on a hat, stripey top and a walking stick for him. It was so much fun.
Here's my little wally....
Cute!!!! I made his top by using one of his vests!! I made the stripes by masking the white off with selotape and then using fired brick distress ink to make the red stripes!!
I made his little hat with a dishcloth!! I sewed up the edge and the tied some string around the top. The very top bit I snipped little shreds into to make it look like a bobble and then I dipped the bobble and the bottom of the hat into some red food colouring! Here it is...

His walking stick was just parcel wrapping covered in seloptape and shaped around with a little bit of clear plastic to hold the curved handle shape.
Mo had a super day and was even allowed to wear his costume for his tennis lesson which he thought was super!! then to top it all off he chose a few cakes from the cake sale we were having at the nursery where I work! he had a pudsey biscuit last night for pudding and tghis morning he had " a melly cake" ( a cake made by my friend Mel's mum!!) for his breakfast!!! There are someleft which I am sure he will munch through over the weekend! but its haircut day today so I had better get a wriggle on and get him to the hairdressers then hopefully a squidge of crafting for me today.
Before I go, my BF is teaching her first cricut class over at Jo's shop, Let's Create, so I want to send her huge huge (((hugs))) and good luck wishes. Fi's blog is here if you fancy leaving her some good luck comments, I know she would really appreciate them.
