I sort of can't believe that I am blogging the snake costume. When I say that I am hopeless with costumes I really mean it. They always seem to come at the last minute.
So when school sent a letter saying Maya was going to be a snake in the Nativity play I was a bit confused to where snakes fitted into the Nativity and how I would make it. Even google images and Jodie's stash of costumes didn't help.
So some cheap, stretchy velour style fabric and a lengthen boys hooded top pattern from Ottobre, my overlocker and some felt applique and Maya has a snake costume that she loves. It came together quickly in the end (a good thing!) and Maya wore it yesterday for the play.
She did tell me in the nicest way that her snake tail was a bit stumpy and looked like a lizards tail...
