I have enjoyed making clothes and costumes for my children. I hope they will remember the fun of these projects as I remember the wonderful dresses, Barbie clothes, and costumes my mother made for me while growing up. It is hard to pick favorites. I have helped create a princess, a mime, a princess, a china doll, a princess, a fairy, a princess, a bunch of grapes, a princess, Minnie Mouse and many more. This year I was blessed to create, for LucyLu, an owl. She was adorable.
LucyLu is a tough one to take pictures of. She is nearly always moving and has a quite frankly I don't give a daisy attitude when you ask her to pose. Here is a rare still moment in front of Word World.
I was inspired by Christine's Pink Owl Costume. You can visit Christine, and check out her sweet, pink, girly owl on her blog, Pure Joy Events. The tutorial is wonderful and you will find templates to download for your own owl creation.
