...From Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat, of course!
*Click on pictures to see them larger*
First, the finished product: (Made entirely from scratch on the last few days before Halloween)
No,no, no, Make that Cat go away!
So naturally, if you have the Fish-in-the-Bowl, you need Thing 1 and Thing 2, as well as the Cat himself! We even had me as "Dr. Suess"!
I also stenciled the Thing 1 & 2 sweatshirts, wrote Dr. Suess poems on my doctors outfit and made the Cat in the Hat's white fleece tummy. But thats another story.
More lovely pictures of the Fish before he was quite finished...
And a few making-of pictures!
All the supplies! (orange fabric, a giant clear drop-cloth, styrofoam balls, wire coat hangers, and blue balloons! We were very resourceful...only spent $13!):
The basis of the head (my old horseback riding helmet with hangers!):
And me modeling the frame of the bowl!
