I truly loved it as a child. There are many pictures of me in my various 'outfits' throughout my childhood. Halloween was a big deal in our house and my mom went to great lengths to insure we all had a Halloween costume we loved. (I plan on doing the same for our kids.)
As I grew up though my idea of dressing up for Halloween or other events drastically changed. Instead of a full on costume, my Halloween costume would consist of wearing jeans, a black top, with the addition of a hot pink feather boa along with some funky jewelry. Was I anything in particular? No. I just liked an excuse to wear some sweet accessories.
Well. As we know there is a big movie coming out on the 15th, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. (My 2nd favorite in the series...I love how Rowling does all the flashbacks/backstory...so awesome!) No. I will not be dressing up when we go to the midnight showing. I will leave that up to the other diehards. However. I figured hey...this is the perfect excuse for some sweet accessory. Right?
So this idea came to mind a few weeks ago and last night I took it from paper to fabric.
Close enough right???
So I know Hedwig is suppose to be 'snowy' white and I wanted her to be completely white but the bag needed some contrast. So that is why there is some gray and black incorporated into the bag. I love how it turned out! This one is for sale in the shop.
