Owl Outfit

I made a cute outfit for my newborn for Halloween, but it would make a cute outfit for any newborn photo shoot.  (By the way, I’ve pixelated my baby’s face to discourage breach of copyright and inappropriate use.)

The owl hat is made using a pattern that I’m writing (it’s been in the works for a few years, but it’s finally progressing! Hopefully I’ll be able to publish it in the next few months).  I love the giant eyes on it!

For the “feathers” I made a short wrap/blanket.  The feathers are made in a pretty new technique called “crocodile stitch.”  It’s a little bit tricky and slightly time consuming, but it makes an impressive piece.  You can learn how to do it at Lost and Found Lane.  To wear the “feathers,” I just wrapped the blanket around my baby so that the folded-over part is in back.  Isn’t she adorable?
