Penguin vs Hedgehog
As I have come to discover, it’s World Book Day next week and that means that I have to make a costume for Bunny to wear to nursery. They have been asked to choose their favourite animal character from a book. When we were first told about it, Bunny said she wanted to go as the hedgehog from The Special Blankie. My heart sunk. I’ve never made a costume before so starting with something so difficult, was more than a challenge.
Fortunately, the next time I asked her, she’d changed her mind and decided on the penguin from And Tango Makes Three. Hooray! I can do that surely?! The next time I asked, it was still a penguin. And the next time, and the time after that too. So I’ve been out and got various bits and pieces to make a penguin costume.
I just asked Bunny to try the top on so that I could measure the white material for the front bib and she stamped her foot and told me that she was going as a hedgehog. I said, “No, a penguin.”
“No! A hedgehog!”
Now what?! How on earth do I make a hedgehog costume with no creative skill whatsoever? Any suggestions?
