As usual I procrastinated part of our family’s costumes this year. So, late last night I finally made our little bubba’s costume…..but totally different than what I was planning.
Our family is being Harry Potter characters this year with big brother as Harry, little sister as Hermione and our new baby as Hedwig the owl. We bought the other costumes but I couldn’t find a baby owl costume that was small enough. So, I set out to make one.
I originally bought a white Carter’s snowsuit that I was going to use for the base, but when I got it home it wasn’t very white and it wasn’t quite right. So, I am returning it. And that left me late last night with nothing. So, I set to work. And remember it was late.
This is how it turned out. Luckily I had some white fleece and some white felt that I used for most of the costume. I made a hat and some pants out of the white fleece, tracing pants and a baby hat that I already had. I then made a tunic out of the felt and hot-glued (in the middle of the night) all of the feathers on it.
Free. With a little midnight oil burned. But I think he will be cute.
