I made this homemade Cat in the Hat kids costume for my 4 year old’s world book day. The suit itself was just a large baby-grow dyed black, with fake fur sewed to the middle, a leg off a pair of tights for his tail, the hat was purely made from cardboard – then I stuck white paper over the top to make it easier to paint.

I was a bit gutted because the next day I realized I had missed a red stripe from the top of the hat BUT… he still won 1st place in his year group :D
