I'm hoping that this is an ok spot for this. It is the beginning of my daughters Dora Halloween costume.
I made back pack by looking at a picture of him. he is made with purple flannel and his face is felt and attached with double sided iron on stuff. He was very flimsy, I tried sticking cardboard inside but it didn't work well, I found my daughters mr. potatoe head case in the toy box and it fit inside perfectly.  Map is made from beige flannel and the actual map is sharpies on plastic that I had a fun time sewing to the flannel as you will see. His face is also felt. I made the straps a bit big so that she can layer up. I havent attached his eyebrows yet, they will be the fasteners.  I will post the full costume when its done and my 1 yr olds Boots costume.
I'm so proud that it ended up as well as it did. It's hard telling my daughter that she can't play with it until after Halloween. any way on with the pics.




you go over the troll bridge, through the spooky forest to the great pumpkin patch!

(she is wearing shorts Smiley)
thanks for looking!
C&C appreciated

I love your backpack, you did such a good job.

I also love the idea of doing a "theme" for halloween, last year my two were Dora and boots, Mackenzie was three and Zach was seven months. This year THE WHOLE FAMILY is doing Wizard of Oz.

What a great Mom you are. My daughter would flip if I made her one of those. She is so in love with Dora.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

Oh yes, we're big Dora fans here too.  I made some like that from felt a few years ago for a birthday party.  I don't know that mine were that well done, but the kids liked them.    Smiley   Yours is adorable!!  I'm sure the kiddos will be a hit!!
