Fox in Socks




Last week we were able to attend the fantastic 1st grade program, "A Book is a Magical Thing".  We were able to see fantastic acts about different wonderful books.  My personal favorite part was when we watched the performance by Fox in Socks.

We were super impressed when the Fox performed on the xylophone.  He was quite the fantastic actor, who even fell asleep a little bit during the production.

Confession, this fox is actually my son.  And I made his costume.  Shocker, right?

Well, it was a really simple costume I put together real quick one afternoon.  I took THIS mask template and readjusted it to look more foxy.

Then I added a bunch of white felt to his sweatshirt and baste stitched it on.

 For his tail I sewed up some red felt, with a white tip.  Then I added button holes to the top, so it could be strung on a belt.  He wore Dad's big blue socks.
 Put it all together and you've got one cute Fox in Socks and a fantastic actor.
