Hello Class of 2011

This week was filled with graduations everywhere. Congrats to you all! Yesterday, I attended my cousin's graduation in Davis.

Before her graduation, she had asked me to decorate her graduation cap :) I had so many options. Do I use rhinestones? Paint? Should glitter be involved? How about just the ears and bow?

I stuck with something simple: her face with a cute bow.

I drew out a template.

Made her face using some shiny scrapbooking paper.

Made her bow out of red fleece.

I didn't have red thread, but I figured if I sewed well enough, you shouldn't notice.

Nothing goes to waste. The scraps that were left over from cutting out the bow pieces were used to stuff the bow.

Used the embroidery method to sew the indentation in the bow.

Aw, it's cute already.

I didn't want to cut a hole in her head, but the tassel had to go somewhere.

lol, she looks funny. I just drew her eyes in with a pen and sharpie, and colored her nose with a gold gel pen and nail polish.

Time to sew the bow on her head.

I wanted to be done here, but she's kind of naked without her whiskers.

Took me awhile to think of a solution, but I managed to find some black yarn around my house. I wrapped the yarn around some pipe cleaners to make her whiskers.

And, done.

Hello Kitty in action. Can you spot it?

Hello Grad
