Giraffe Costume

My little baby girl's 2 nd Halloween is just days away, and I can remember last year she was just 3 weeks old. This year I am so excited because I have decided to make her costume.

I actually had many ideas of what to make for her; although I loved the giraffe costume idea. I decided on my basic baby sleeper pattern.
For the head piece I used the hat from a jacket pattern, and for the ears, and the antlers (does anyone really know what those things are called?) I used my imagination.

I loved making this absolutly cute costume for my daughter.
****Not to mentione she looks fantastic in her Giraffe costume. ****

Next year at O'Baby Fashions, I do plan on including costumes 09' fall lineup. I would also like for all my readers and shoppers to know that ANYTIME can be costume time!
Please contact me with any of your personal requests.

Jack Skeleton Special Order

A close friend of mine came to me and requested a very special order. As her and I talked she mentioned that her daughter Loved Jack Skeleton -the Night Before Christmas-, and that she would love to have a take home outfit for him to come home in. So As her and I talked I started thinking hard about this fantastic opportunity for me to come up with something creative that would not only please her but also look great on her brand new grandson!

I then started going through all my baby patterns that I had; pulling a little from this one and this one, to develop this extremly cute costume.
I soon decided on a pajama pattern with footies; only instead of buttons i oppted for a zipper only because this black pen stripe fabric i was afraid would be too weak for the snap buttons.
For the zacket I decided on just a vest, and I folded down the corner edges and added a sturdy iron on fusible fabric. The coat tales on the back i did the same . The vest jacket would be closed off at the bottom of the V shape, with a single black button.

The black tie I knew would be what was going to pull the entire outfit together.. I decided on using a black sturdy felt, and added a black pom pom ball to the midde, and on the back i sewed on a small clear button. The tie would be then attached through a button hole of a white bib.
The Jack Skelelton project was great from begging to start! I am personally pleased with how it had turned out.

I loved making this great outfit for my close freind from work. And I would love to come up with something special for your soon to arrive Baby Boy, Girl in your family. Please email me at obabyfashions@yahoo.com and Lets talk about what you would love to have!

Happy Shopping
