Tutu Craziness

I finally completed the cupcake birthday onesie yesterday so today I began the tutu! This tutu is quite the mix of color; pink, green, yellow and purple! The perfect pop of color for a little girls first birthday! If you have made a tutu, you know you’re up to your ears in tulle :/ so after cutting four yards this is what I had to work with! Plus a patient husband in the background 🙂

One can only spend so much time before going tutully crazy so I didn’t get finished. Here’s the start… this pic doesn’t look so great but, it’s definitely coming together!

(Yes, that’s a pot… perfect holder for tutu in the making) 🙂

It will be finished within the next few days, so check back for the progress! When this is complete the matching hair bow will be next 🙂 

I am off to bed, I have a full day of teaching tomorrow and obviously tutu making in the evening 🙂 

Happy Crafting

Sewed a little BIT of this and a little BIT of that

After being out all day preparing for Birthday madness tomorrow (and maybe a few selfish stops at the fabric store) I came home to a pleasant surprise! Aunt Mel and “The Godfather” Andy stopped by to see E and to check out the “Bits & C” gear, lets just say they loved it all and walked away with a few goods 🙂

(That’s Me, Bits and “The God Father”) 🙂

After that we put E down for the night and I hit my sewing corner. I finally finished my onesie that is being reviewed and set up for a giveaway on “Mommys Craft Obsession” and whipped up a pillow for my Aunt, for her birthday!

Image

I absolutely love this onesie! I have been trying to come up with cute birthday ideas for little girls and this is what appeared! 🙂 I think it is fab! I will be pairing it with a matching full tutu as well as a hair bow to complete the ensamble! I will be preparing the little boys ensamble this week. I am thinking along the lines of an awesome vest and tie onesie, gotta keep it swag!

The pillow is a gift, and of course my guilty pleasure of making something fun, that just makes me smile 🙂
