I wasn't sure what I was going to do for Aubrey's Halloween Costume this year as I didn't know where we would be living or if we'd even be doing anything. So I didn't want to spend too much money in case it wouldn't be used! Then I got the idea for her to be an owl since she likes them so much. It's amazing what you can do with some felt and thread. I used an existing brown hooded sweater and sewed on some felt feathers, eyes, beak and ears. I happened to have the two buttons in my crochet bag which I had with me, but all my craft stuff is packed so I got a little sewing kit from the hotel so I had a needle and I used little curved nail cutting scissors to cut all the felt, that was not fun! Anyways, it didn't take long and I like how it turned out. Now when Aubrey wears it she pats her head and then who's like an owl, it's pretty cute.
