The only owl costume I found
was for sale at Pottery Barn Kids
No way, Jose.
I decided I could make one.
It can't be that hard, right?
So I googled something or another
that led me to a website
with a template for an owl mask
and owl feathers.
was cut out a gagillion of them
and sew them onto a shirt.
DRL decided Elena needed to be
a white-bellied owl
All brown would have been a little boring.
I even threw some white "feathers"
on the back to add depth.
Or depth of character.
but all in all
I am very pleased with how it turned out.
And how easy it actually was to make.
Two years ago, I couldn't even thread a sewing machine.
Chew on that for a minute the next time you think
you can't do something
just because you've never done it before.
Mama's done taking pictures,
can we take the Owl costume off now?
