Her crazy parents (us) have front row tickets to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live! when they come to Atlanta. We are excited!
We have to carry a lot of stuff with a toddler in tow, so I created us a special bag to take down to the show. May I present.....Delilah's DJ Lance BoomBox Bag!
Looks like Muno and Foofa managed to worm themself into the front pocket of the bag. For those of you not familiar with the show, a DJ named Lance has a big magic boombox. And in the boombox live odd little creatures. The boombox is opened and the characters play and dance.
Here is a pic of DJ Lance and the "real" boombox from the show:
This bag is based on the tote tutorial posted here on Sew Mama Sew. I made this bag a little bit wider than the tutorial to make it more boombox shaped. (This tutorial rocks. I have made so many of these bags)
I love this bag! The satin is shimmery and the bag is roomy. The colored pieces are felt that I lightly glued on then topstitched around each piece. Moms know, we have to bring a bag with us wherever we go with our kids anyway, so why not a fun bag that relates to the show! When I showed Delilah the bag she pointed to it and yelled "Yo Gabba!" which made me feel lovely.
Our plan is for my husband to dress up like DJ Lance for the show! Yep - seriously. Is he a great Daddy or what? I'm thinking about what I want to make for Delilah and I to wear. So far I think I will make her a dress modeled after the robot character on the show, but I'm not sure yet. There will be a photo op with the characters and I am ALL about the great photo op! It's a rare thing to get front row tickets to anything, so we are throwing ourselves all in for the experience. Costumes, photos, fun!
Still working on bringing you some new items and tuturials - two more ugly knit entries coming up. One I think is pretty cool and I am proud of - the other, well, I took an ugly sweater and made an ugly hat from it. Ah well.
