My Great Idea, 12 months of homemade owl apparel

In November, I decided that I'd make one article of clothing each month for a year for Hazel, out of OWL fabric!!!!!!!! I was inspired after searching the thousands of fabric listings on etsy. I'm behind on the posts, but have kept up with my work, I have the outfits for November, December, and January.

HERE THEY ARE!!!!!!!!!!!

NOVEMBER: I made this with a portabellopixie pattern. It's the first kid's clothing pattern I've used. It was a nice surprise to find the pattern was equipped with three other designs. I have already made seven dresses with this pattern. This was H's second b-day dress and my first time working with tulle.

DECEMBER: Nana gave H a pair of cute ruffle bottom pants for her bday, so of course, I had to try to make my own, not bad for no pattern.

JANUARY: I used a bananafana pattern (tea party twirl). I have to admit, at first I found the directions confusing and I thought the dress wasn't going to be that cute, but in the end, I LOVE the dress and it was EASY to make. Yes, I will be making more!

Stay tuned for February's work of art.
