The Man in the Yellow Hat

I was so excited to find out that Braden's school was going to celebrate Read Across America day by letting the kids dress as their favorite book character and walk in a school wide parade.  Braden was super excited and kept asking if people were going to be playing horns at the front of the parade ( and immediately thought of dressings Curious George (, not gonna buy a monkey suit for one day).  After several suggestions from me and several um...nos from him we finally settled on the Man in the Yellow Hat and decided that Braden could carry  Parker's stuffed Curious George.

The costume was fairly simple to put together (after I figured out how to rig the hat) and not too pricey to make.  After digging through his closet, a trip to Hobby Lobby, a little sewing and a lot of hot glue, this is what we rangled up...
