What's Up, Cupcake? Menu

Whoooo you lookin' at?

You may not have noticed but I like to multi-task. Or multi-craft in this case.  At any one time, I usually have 4-5 projects going so I can pick them up as the mood suits me. In this case I’m currently working on:
  1. Lady Grey’s raincoat/jacket sew along
  2. My first cross-stitch project
  3. A few knitting projects (which I’ll just count as one item)
  4. My Halloween costume

Today, I’ll share a sneak peak at my in progress Halloween costume.  
This year I wanted to make my own costume so I spent some time surfing the web and flipping through the pages of pattern books.  No one costume called out to me until all of a sudden, I had the idea to be an owl.  I had seen an owl costume that was cute, but something about it was just.... too much. So I decided to tweak a few patterns and come up with my own.  The main focal point of this pattern would be the cape, which would be covered in owl feathers.  I used Simplicity pattern 2531 as my inspiration and for the feather pattern.  

Here’s a picture of the almost finished cape.  I’m going to add the feather trim to the top edge and the hood.  

I also made a brown dress and am working on a mask with the below pieces.  

Final product coming soon!


  1. Ahhhh I love it!!! Can't wait to see the finished result, have you got stripey leggings too?

    I got some brown chevron leggings from the Target. :) And I have some cute brown heels. The finished touch should be my Tootsie Pop lunchbox filled with them! 'Mr. Owl...'

  3. How come I live in the same house as you and haven't seen the finished product yet? Looks great here!

  4. It looks so awesome!
