Thank You Theodor S. Geisel!!

I have a Theodor S. Geisel hat !!
Or maybe I should say a Dr. Seuss hat or more acurately a Cat in the Hat hat- haha!
I'm a huge Dr. Seuss fan. I love so many of his quotes!
I made this hat when College Girl was in 1st or 2nd grade. I wore it to read to all the classes in the library on Dr. Seuss's birthday. I wore black sweats and my Cat in the Hat bedroom shoes. The kiddos loved it and she was so happy I was at school in my hat. I bet she wouldn't be as proud if I showed up at college in my hat :)
So, this hat is practically an antique and before blogging so no step by steps. It is made from felt strips and posterboard to help the brim stay in shape. It is machine sewn and if I can do it, anyone can!!! Obviously if you only wear it on Theodor's birthday it holds up pretty well.

And here is Thing 1

And Thing 2 !!
Ha Ha!! My dogs really aren't named Thing 1 and 2 but there are some similarities in behavior!! Thing 1 is Biscuit and Thing 2 is Chloe. Chloe is being camera shy - she is our rescue and came to us abused and terrified. She is making great progress but is  still afraid of the camera. As you can see Thing 1 is not shy at all!!! He loves the spotlight!!

Have  a Seussical day and remember:
I love Dr. Seuss
