Owl Hat

 Peanut Butter is going to be an owl for Halloween.  
My Mom sent him this owl stuffed animal and he is more owl crazy than ever.  

 I decided I was going to upcycle his costume so when I saw Cheryl's Upcycled Boy Hat, I knew it would be the hat for his costume.
I loved how she added embellishments with stitching and buttons, so I added the owl's face using felt onto the hat.

I changed one thing from her pattern.  I kept the top piece a rectangle so that there would be pointy ears on the hat. Before I sewed the face on, it reminded me of a Batman mask... I might have to make one of those in the future.
The top section is a little big.  I might sew it down a little so it fits more snugly.  
When he saw himself in the hat, he said a very excited, "OWL!"

The brown t-shirt I used said professional air guitarist, I really wanted to get all that on there, but his head is so small! This was so simple, I am going to whip up 2 more hats for me and my husband to wear on Halloween too.
