I started off with a 10x10 pizza box. You can try asking your local pizza places for empty boxes or you can buy them in bulk at Gordon Food Service. I now have 47 empty pizza boxes waiting for a fun idea. I cut a piece of felt to fit the top of the box and used Tacky spray glue to attach it. Next time I would probably use a darker color as the flannel background.
Next, I took a pattern that I created in April and shrunk it down to fit the 10 inch pizza box. (If you would like your own pattern, please send me a message.)
Here is Pete the Cat.
Oops, he stepped in strawberries and now has red shoes.
(If you read the story, he also has white, brown, and blue shoes.)
Here is Pete with his four groovy buttons.
Pete's ready for a little baseball coming in his new book
Pete the Cat: Play Ball (February 2013).
All of these cool costumes are stored in plastic baggies inside the pizza box. I am running a little behind on getting this to the post office, so my swap partner will get this sometime next week.
