J decided a while ago that he wants to be Diego, the animal rescuer, for Halloween. All of the Diego costumes I found were really cheap looking, but cost over $30, so I decided to buy a few pieces and make a few others to create our own costume. J decided the three things he really needed were a vest, a Diego watch and a field journal. I ordered a vest and watch and started making a field journal.
Then yesterday he decided he really needed a rescue pack. Fortunately, I just bought an orange fleece remnant last week and I had some foam sheets with my craft supplies. After about 15 minutes of planning and 10 minutes of sewing and another 10 minutes of cutting out craft foam:
The Rescue Pack is finished!
It's not as functional as I'd like (I didn't make sides, just a front and back so it's really shallow), but it will hold a few small items and J is really excited about it.
Next up, trying to make a polar bear costume for N. Wish me luck!
