...But Where Do the Ears Go?

This week's project is to make eleven camel costumes for the 3rd and 4th graders in our church Christmas program. It's an easy enough costume, really. Just a little poncho with a hood attached, so I should have no problem getting them done in time for the program this Sunday.

I hope.

Today I'm attaching the ears to the hoods, and for the life of me, I couldn't picture just where a camel's ears were placed on his head. So I was happy to find some great pictures at Fohn.net's "Camel Pictures and Facts" website. (If you ever want to know more about camels, this is a great resource!)

Hopefully I'll make some progress today, and have a photo of the actual costume to share soon. Then I can move on to other things, like making and shopping for Christmas gifts. I have a whole two weeks yet... right?

Will do! I ran into a little glitch yesterday. Whoever cut the pieces out cut the neck opening too large for the hood, so now I have to figure out a way to "make it work." ugh.

But the ears are on! lol
