My daughter is a School House Rock Fanatic. So she wanted to be the Bill that sits on Capitol Hill. I must say I started thinking about this in July, when I could easily buy patriotic ribbon, although you can probably find it online all year.

I bought a long piece of foam used for custom made cushions. IN order to keep it from scratching, I covered it with white material (I hot glue gunned it around. I closed the “bill” with some really large snap closures that I sawed into the fabric and foam. I was afraid they would come off when she pulled them if I just glued them. Then I glued the patriotic ribbon around.

The front part is a door decoration, with a cardboard round cutout. Voila, she was happy and it definitely kept her warm! Every parent over 30 totally loved it.
