For Halloween this year my daughter told me she wanted to be an Owl. I know not the typical costume for a 6yr old girl, but after last years Hippo I was not too surprised.
I actually took my daughter with me to the craft store to help pick out the fabric for her costume. Once we got into the isle she started grabbing fabric off the shelf, the kid knew what she wanted! Of course the fabric she picked was like ten dollars a yard so I put it back and went to go find similar fabric that was a LOT cheaper.
Although I did most of the work on this costume she did help a little. I could have had her help more, but we did not have the time with Halloween just a few weeks away.
There are two other parts to this costume the dress and the mask. I will be posting each of those separately so that I can post full tutorials for each and if I did it all in one post it would just be too long.
1 Yard of Fabric for Wing Base
2 Yards of Blue Fabric (keep in mind I used this for the dress too)
2 Yards of Pink Fabric (keep in mind I used this for the dress too)
2 Yards of Green Fabric (keep in mind I used this for the dress too)
1pkg of Blue, Pink, and Green Feathers (optional)
Fabric Glue (I used Beacon Fabri-Tac)
1/4″ Braided Elastic
