This boy loves cars, trucks, trains, etc. He's very much like R. So, i meshed together something fun, drawing inspiration from this tutorial on Make it and Love it, Disney/Pixar's Cars, and Mr. Potato Head.
I am very aware of the flaws - it's a first draft, done without a pattern, and i was in a hurry. Despite that, i think it turned out pretty cute!
there's velcro on the sides, top, windshield and front bumper so the pieces can be changed up. I only had time for three different costumes:
|The Rock Star|
|The Major Leaguer|
|The license plate - i'm no great shakes at embroidery - this is the first time i've done words, and had to free hand it. I ran out of room for the 's'...|
Also, too late, i thought it would be a laugh (and a nod to one object of inspiration) to make a tiny burlap sack labeled "Potatoes" to put in the truck bed. Next time!
