With special thanks to the pattern from Alpha Mom blogger, I travel to the fabric store. My daughter has asked for an owl costume, and I can’t find one pre-made anywhere.
“Can’t we make one?” Oh, no. Anything but this.
If you know me, you know I have absolutely zero crafting or sewing skills. I do own a glue gun, though. So I travel to the fabric store, find the cheapest fabric, and spend the afternoon cutting out feathers. Imagine: music playing, children frolicking, and fabric feathers flying about the living room.
My oldest daughter teaches me how to vary a pattern so it looks like feathers. I hadn’t considered this. We use hot glue, and I find myself strangely confident.
I start gluing. This is actually working.
She’s going to wear it with a brown tutu and a painted owl face. I can’t believe I did it.
Thank you, blogging world, for do-it-yourself costumes!
