Ions ago, I shared a small brooch I made for a friend who lovingly called her baby "little hoot" while he lived in her uterus. (What?! That's where he used to live!) Now that he's born, "little hoot" is named Jasper and we looove baby Jasper. Especially Junebug. She talks about him non-stop.
Anyhow, Jasper's momma shared with me that she wasn't going to have time to make a costume for her little man like she'd wanted to. Some lame excuse about having a newborn and lack of sleep and yadda yadda yadda... I say let the baby scream and craft away, but I guess that's just me. (Umm, before you turn me in to the authorities, let me just say I'm kidding and I do not advocate neglecting your children so that you can craft. Neglect your laundry and housework, yes, but never your children.)
I took advantage of having my in-laws visiting and entertaining Junebug and here's the owl costume I made for "little hoot":
The hat was made using the Owl Hat pattern from Maybe Matilda's Etsy shop. Be sure to check out her shop because she has some cute patterns you can whip up in time for Christmas gifts!
The body of the owl was made by cutting scallops into one side of strips of felt and sewing them onto a plain onesie. Why not let your little one be super-comfy in a onesie rather than itchy in some polyester costume?
Little Jasper made the perfect owl. Happy first Halloween, little man!
