DIY Olaf Costume

Frozen is all the rage with little kids these days, so Frozen costumes are going to be a hot commodity. My older girl wants to be Elsa, look for that costume by next week sometime, and she requested that her baby sister be Olaf.

This was not a hard costume to make and for me hardly cost anything. For this costume I used:
  • White fleece hat
  • Long sleeve white onesie
  • White pants
  • White fleece
  • Felt - Black and Orange
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Small amount of stuffing

First, I turned the hat inside out. I then traced the hat and cut two pieces out of fleece, to make a shell to go over the existing hat.

Next, I cut out all the felt for the eyes, eye brows, nose and buttons. The next step was to sew everything onto the hat shell, onesie and pants. Before sewing the nose onto the shell I stuffed it with some stuffing. Finally, I added    for the sticks on the top of his head.

Here is the finished costume:

Quick & Easy Sock Drawer Organization

I always keep my shoe boxes from all the shoes that I buy for free storage opportunities. Recently, I have been frustrated with the disorder in my daughters sock and underwear drawer. Both of my girls share this drawer, so it can get pretty messy. I decided to take a few of those shoe boxes and fix the messy problem.

Here is what it looked like before.

Here is what it looks like now.
