hedwig the owl

C's owl costume was inspired by the baby bird costume story from Martha Stewart Baby a few years back (created by Katie Hatch, who is a sewing genius). You can find the directions for the wings here. I added some rows of felt feathers glued onto a onesie to make it feel a bit more owl-y. The whole costume can be done in a few hours, and you don't even have to turn on your sewing machine.

I googled "Hedwig costume" and landed on your blog. My friend and I are having a Harry Potter themed birthday party (we are both turning 24), and I think I'll make an owl costume. I only hope I look half as cute as Bee.

Thanks so much for posting this amazing outfit idea! I'm going to the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows tomorrow night and wanted to make a quick Hedwig costume- it took only a couple hours and looks so cute (though he may look cuter than I do)! Thanks for sharing!!!

Hi. Love your owl! Just wondering...for the wings, did you use Martha's bluebird or owl template?

10.5.2012 | Unregistered CommenterLynnsey

Hi There - What kind of glue did you use to affix the feathers onto the onesie? Thanks in advance for your reply.
