Grandchildren visit coming up!

 Ooooo I have so much fun making things for the grandchildren. We are heading out tomorrow for a visit, and I made animal costumes, that is a cape and a mask for each of them, of a zebra and a leopard. I used these patterns:
For the capes   http://threadridinghood.com/wordpress/made-by-me-monday-super-hero-cape-pattern-tutorial/
And for the masks  http://slowmama.com/arts-crafts/diy-kids-felt-superhero-masks/

Then I decided that they each needed a stuffie of the animal in question, so I made those. I used these patterns:

And for the zebra  . . . eek, no matter how I search I cannot find the link. Luckily I printed out the pattern.
