First things first ...one favourite book?
Ha! Joe has a different favourite book every day! The solution, I walked to his bookshelf, looked at the all the books and pulled down several that had characters in them that I could potentially turn into a costume. He chose a classic that used to be his Dad's book when he was a kid, the book is called Poor Pigeon and yes, I hunted around online & you can still buy it!
Right, ok. A bird, he want's to dress as a pigeon. Hmm. Scratch head then suddenly remember some fabric you bought a couple of years ago from Spoonflower because it looked cute but never did anything with.
Next year, well I'm hoping he'll want to go as a dinosaur so I can get him this!
Ok, so how did I do? Did I pass my first parenting costume creation?!!
