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?
