I am a quilter, therefore I sew, therefore I can make a costume for my nephew who wants to be Sam I Am.
Sam I Am is not a costume pattern this Halloween. I found one already made on Ebay, but I was outbid at $36.99. Like Clint Eastwood, I adapt, overcome, improvise with this pattern.
My Veterinarian sister asked if she owed me anything for my efforts. I said well, I studied the pattern for about an hour, I believe you doctors call that a 'consultation'. What's the going rate on that?
Improvise - instead of making a whole new hat, I found a Dr. Suess hat, I used my trusty hot glue gun to cover the white with red felt. Viola - Sam I Am hat.
Ta-Da. But the kid is going to be hot in all this fleece, he lives in FL. The neck gave me daymares, until I remembered that you can use elastic instead of all that interfacing. Especially since said kid is in another state and can't be measured.
