There goes the no sewing costumes thing I had going. Someone came home from school yesterday insisting that they needed a costume (once thought optional and decidedly not wanted) for a school presentation today! So I walked in the door from a long day at work confronted with the request to SEW a costume for school. Great.
We bought the hat and I made the faux leather jacket out of tan knit fabric so I could cut the fringe easily. I just happened to have the fabric in my stash. Super E was so excited & pleased with his outfit, that it made it all worth it.
The project was called History’s Mysteries. Each child picked a historical figure to write a paper on, then had to dress up as them, presenting clues as to who they were. Parents were invited to come and guess.
Here are the clues (compiled and written by my Super-E):
1. I was born on August 1st, 1770 in Caroline County, Virginia.
2. I lived in Missouri for most of my life.
3. I had help from Meriwether Lewis.
4. Also, I lived to see the Pacific Coast.
5. I met unknown people and made good maps.
6. I saw the land of the Louisiana Purchase.
7. I met Thomas Jefferson.
8. My biggest accomplishment lasted 28 months and covered 8000+ miles.
Can you guess who I am? I’ll post the answer later in this post. 🙂
