As in previous years, the children and I got into the Halloween spirit. I carved some pumpkins, put some orange balloons on our fence and got our bowl of treats ready on the hall table. Halloween is big in our neck of the woods, because our streets are full of young families. And the children in those families aren't going to pass up the opportunity to amass a large quantity of free sweets.
I borrowed some inspiration from Pinterest. As you can see, this costume idea is by no means my original design. But I happened to have a pretty selection of owl coloured fabrics and I couldn't resist replicating it.
I made a little feather template that was 4 inches wide and 5 inches long. I grabbed a handy Townmouse tee, set my machine to zigzag and got to work. This little outfit took about 30 minutes to construct. The owl eyes were cut out of my very handy patternmaking card and stuck to an old pair of sunglasses.
Teamed with some grey leggings, Adelaide was good to go.
Now I think it's time for a bowl of pumpkin soup!
