Little Miss Mary Poppins

I made this one with that string Alissa was talking about....
We are on a serious budget so I was looking for the absolute cheapest (and quickest) way to make this little ditty - I used scraps, felt and solid colored t-shirts because they were cheaper than buying fabric and I could keep some of the already made seams and hems - which made my life a lot easier! All in all I'm happy with how it turned out even though it's definitely not the best made costume - but that was my plan - quick and cheap and UNIQUE!

And here is the little cheekiness herself showing off her duds!
She went for more of a modern Poppins with the cell phone accessory.


I was also inspired my Alissa's homemade decorations from last year and created these silhouettes... representations of our family using altered frame & silhouette designs from the web. The frames are made from stiff black felt and the rest from paper.

Molly, those silhouettes make me JEAL.OUS. They look awesome. And Chloe-face looks amazing. She is such a sassy Mary Poppins.

Molly, it turned out great!!! I am so glad you actually went for it. I hope I was in some way helpful, but I highly doubt you really needed any help. Your probably just needed the push. She is adorable! I love the umbrella by the way. And the silhouettes are fantastic!
