Give Me A Hoot

During my last trip to Joann's I found this fabulous fabric.

As soon as I spotted it I had to have it.  So cute how could I resist?!  It
is a  very soft, very fine corduroy. Perfect for fall.  I had no idea what I was going to make with it, but I knew I had to have it! There was 2 yards on the bolt and you know I had to get it all.  Really, I wish there was more.  Maybe next time.  Anyway I managed to get 3 projects out of this.  Here is one of those projects.

I made her some pants.

Nothing special just a regular elastic waistband pants.

And because I like to dress Aiyanna all matching I made her an owl shirt to go with the pants.

I just cut a tree out of a brown scrap t-shirt.  Cut the owls out of the fabric. Then using Wonder Under I appliqued them onto the shirt.

Now she has a super cute outfit ready for the cooler weather!
