Impromptu Rooster

One day Little Bear needed to dress as a farm animal for a Farm Charade.  We don’t have farm animal costumes laying around the house, so this is where we got creative and  got our upcycle on. 🙂

This is when an old t-shirt and a piece of foam place mat came to the rescue.

I cut the ‘Rooster Comb’ from the foam and pinned it inside two layers of the t-shirt. I sewed it on the machine to fit the size of his head and turned it right side out.

He was very pleased with the results! He enjoyed the time we spent together while I did this.

The message of this post is this: Next time you need an impromptu rooster outfit, or other random need, get creative and see if you can’t upcycle first.
