Can you believe that Halloween is already right around the corner? Crazy! When I was pregnant with Miss L last year at this time, I was already thinking about what Babygirl would be for Halloween. Owls seem to be her thing, (that would be her mom’s doing), and when I saw this cute and easy owl costume idea on Pinterest, it was a done deal. Click here for the tutorial.
I am tweaking the idea just a bit. Miss L will be wearing an owl hat instead of the sunglasses, and I’ll be adding some leggings. Indiana usually isn’t toasty at the end of October. I also want to figure out a way to bring in a little *bling*!
I’ve managed to snag all of the items for $22. Not bad considering that we can use the hat and mittens all winter and reuse the leggings (if I haven’t blinged them out too much).
Here is how the costume turned out:
I ended up using some sequins around the collar of the costume, which you actually can’t see very well in the pictures. I sewed some purple polka dotted ribbon into the lining of the hat so that Miss L. couldn’t tear off her hat, which she would totally do.
I didn’t sew a single stitch for the owl’s feathers. I hot glue gunned the feathers to the turtle neck. I also hot glued the sequined detailing around her collar.
