So I’ve had it in my head lately to make Elliott a halter dress with an owl applique. I scoured the internet for owl applique patterns, but couldn’t find one that just fit what I had in mind. With little confidence in my drawing skills, I set out to draw my own little owl. I was pleasantly surprised with how he turned out! I don’t use an embroidery machine. I stitch it all either by hand or a machine zigzag, so forgive imperfections, please.
I wanted to include some action shots and since Elliott is anti-posing—or anti-being-still–I had to bribe her with a game of peek-a-boo.
She calls it ‘playing peeky poos!’. And doesn’t she look thrilled?
A balloon, however, is not a good idea for getting a toddler to stand still!
But you get the idea. I wonder just how many halter tops and dresses this girl will have by summertime?
