I wanted something simple for her since she was still a pretty new walker. I also wanted something warm. I stumbled on this super cute Pottery Barn Kid's costume and knew she had to have an owl cape.
I appliqued on the eyes and nose and alternated two different colors for the wings and sewed them in staggered layers to make them look like feathers. I'm very pleased with the outcome and she has worn it a lot. She loves to wear it and it matches just about everything she owns. It's finally starting to get short on her so I'll have to draft up a larger one.
I love this next series of photos. She looks like a tiny Jedi.
These are not the cookies you're looking for.
and here she is a full year later wearing the same cape.
