Do you have kids? Or just love cartoons? Then you may know who this little fella is...he's Perry. Perry the Platypus. Average household pet until he dons his hat and then, he's Agent P. Spy extraordinaire. This show, Phineas and Ferb, is my son's (both actually) favorite new cartoon of the summer. Okay, I confess, it's the whole family's. It is the one cartoon we can all watch & enjoy. I just love it.
The 2 brothers, Phineas & Ferb, come up with these crazy ideas of what to do everyday during their summer vacation. Like city wide roller coasters, traveling back in time, creating a portal to Mars...you know, usual kid stuff :P Their big sis Candice tries to bust them every time, but alas, something always happens & the inventions disappear. Most of the time it is due to Perry as Agent P while he defeats the evil Dr. Doofenschmirtz...who is, well, kind of a blundering evil villain. Okay, enough recap...onto the crafts.
My youngest starts preschool Monday, so I made him a backpack. It is made from corduroy and has Perry on the front. It turned out pretty good I must say. I debated about having the parachute that Perry was holding on the backpack as well, but scraped that idea...too busy. I was hoping it would look a little like he was holding the straps. It is lined, which was a pain. I need to find an easier way to do that with the top & gusset. I am actually more amazed that I finished it last night :)
So, what do you think? Because my son, well, he may have looked at it all bright eyed this morning. But when I told him I made it for him. His response? "But I want Phineas". Grrr.The reaction may be more of the I don't want to go to school variety than an actual not wanting. Because when he heard me say that maybe his cousin might want it, he said "maybe Perry is okay, he is my favorite actually". Well duh, that's why I made him. Ahhh, kids. Gotta love 'em.
