My best friend wanted to be a shark for Halloween so we starting brainstorming. Finally we decided on making a cape with grey flannel. I just cut out a rectangle 30″ x 15″ for the hood in grey for the outside and red for the inside. We used a stiff felt for the teeth and some leftover black and white flannel for the eyes and gills.
I made Esme a drawstring backpack using the tutorial from The Purl Bee. Using Heat n’ Bond, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the letter “E” and ironed it onto the bag.
Then I made a Peppa Pig card for her with my Silhouette. Initially I was gonna use the print & cut feature but my printer was busted so i had to cut everything out. It was such a pain to glue all the pieces on!
I made a little collapsible tray for my husband to put on his desk to hold his stuff (like keys, lighters, etc.) and one for myself. The corners have velcro so that you can flatten it and take it with you when you travel. Seems very handy to bring to hotels. I used the tutorial from here, but have since found an easier one. The rounded corners were a pain in the butt, so next time I think I’ll just try the tutorial from Noodle Head.
