World book day outfit in a night! Spit spot!

So you take a Pinterest pin as your start point, and sketch a brolly handle on card stock, then you add Heidi Swapp colorshine in teal and mint, Pink Paislee Mistables, black card white card and glitter paper. Stitch and staple it together with some white ink to add shadows and a big glossy brad and hey presto you have Mary Poppins' umbrella handle for the start of the outfit! I just covered the handle of my big brolly and taped it on!
 You take a black dust-cover bag from your favourite Debenhams designer handbag, you gather it up roughly and hand stitch it here and there to an old hat. You use your Cameo to cut some daisies and add them to a large brad and a pipe-cleaner stem, then stitch them to the brim. You take some red tissue paper and scrunch it into balls and hot glue gun it them to the brim for the cherries and hey presto you have a Mary Poppins' hat!
You take a Julie Andrews picture from the web, you find your navy coat, grey gloves and salmon pink scarf and add some cherry red lipstick and "Spit Spot!" you are Mary Poppins!!
Happy World Book day you all!!

All this for my half day!! Lets just hope I don't get stopped driving to school tomorrow!! Ha Ha!! Now where are my hat pins!! TFLx
