a $1.00 hat from Walgreens
a $2.00 shirt from GoodWill
and a $3.00 curtain panel from GoodWill?
Let me show you...
Step one, cut the back out of the shirt and hot glue it around the hat. Cut a band out of the remaining arm sleeve fabric and add it around the base of the hat.
Step Two, cut out "legs," "bib," and "back" for overalls (I just eyeballed - I didn't have a pattern)
I cut the shirt pocket off and sewed it directly to the bib front...
What's a pair of overalls without a pocket on the bib?
I purchased a set of overall buckles at Wal-Mart for $1.75
Sew right sides together, sew front and back to the pants, finish edges, add buckles...
Try them on and see how much you have to hem the pants...
Print out a RR Crossing symbol from the internet, create a "Conductor" plaque
hot glue them to the hat...
$6.00 and 2 hours later and you've transformed a hat, a shirt and a curtain into the cutest TRAIN CONDUCTOR this mama's ever seen!
Happy Fall Festival, y'all!
