DIY wolf costume

My  son’s favorite character these days is the Big Bad Wolf. So for Dress up  Day in school I decided to make him a wolf costume. His costumes are always homemade. It’s fun and inexpensive.

I looked this up on the internet and found some designs using felt and a hoodie. Since it’s still not cold enough for a hoodie I decided to improvise and used the same pattern on an old hat I had. Much more comfortable in this weather! I embroidered his shirt to read “LITTLE WOLF”.

Daily Prompt: Activity

Being a full time mom of an energetic 3 yr old who is currently on his summer holidays, I am usually keeping him entertained and busy. But to keep the balance I need to make something with my own hands (other than Lego!). Here is what I recently completed:

It took me a month to make and was difficult to do because each piece was so small and also because I don’t speak Arabic and had to rely on the translation to understand what I was doing. In the end it was really worth it. My favorite is Al-Rahman, The Gracious, One Who shows mercy gratuitously and extensively to all creation without regard to effort or work.
