I had serious doubts that I would finish the Mater hat in time for my cousin's son's birthday party. To the point that I almost didn't even try to finish it. But, after making a fool out of myself Zumba-ing (privately, with the Wii... I try to avoid public humiliation), I felt like attempting to boost my seriously damaged ego (really, I can't dance. At all.) and try to fix my Mater Potato Head.
I didn't have time to do the tire ear flaps (bummer) but that's OK. I think it looks much more Mater-ish than it did, so I am happy. Plus, how can you look at this and not smile...
Making it 3D helped a bunch. And fixing his teeth.
Happy Birthday, Grant! (yeah, that's Zoe, not Grant. With all the kids and fun happening, I only got a very fuzzy shot of him with it on. He seemed to like it though. His 5 year old brothers liked it more, I think ;) )
