Henry’s fascination with owls has been ongoing for a few months now so his Halloween costume choice was an obvious one, with his stipulation that the owl needed to be a ‘surprised owl’, not a scary owl
I sewed/hot glued (some of the stitches didn’t keep) cut feathers onto a plain gray tee and paired it with some gray skinnies.
Okay, here’s the owl cap process:
I used a baby pilot cap based my pattern off of it. Obviously I adjusted the size a bit and made the front stick out a little more.
Sewed the three pieces together, matching the pointed ends together
Added some ribbon for the tie
And hot glued some owl features on. There are adjustments I would make if I were to do it again but I’m happy with how it turned out. I love working with felt. Not having to hem makes everything so EASY! Too bad all of our clothing can’t be made from felt.
