It's been a crazy last couple months! I thought I would have all this time in the summer to do all these projects I had on my list, but my list got scrambled when we found out we are having a baby! We are so very excited for her to join our family in December! Until people knew, I couldn't post anything on here baby related, but now I can! Yay!
Today I will share Baby's first Christmas outfit. I know, it's only September, but since she is due a week before Christmas, I didn't want to run out of time after she was born. Her clothing collection is growing (which is awesome), but I wanted to make her outfit for her first Christmas because we will also be taking her pictures in this outfit.
I started with a long sleeved onesie I already had from my mom. I cut out some ribbon and put it in the shape of a tree. I glued it on with some fabric glue - I'll keep you all posted about how I liked it. So far, I like the glue for the ribbon to the onesie, but not so much for the ribbon to ribbon. It doesn't really want to stick for that.
Then, I made her a tutu. I couldn't find any bright green tulle, so I decided to use strips of ribbon in it's place. I used ribbon at the top instead of elastic also. I did find red and white tulle. I cut the tulle and green ribbon into strips of 14 inches using a piece of cardboard cut to that length so I just had to wrap it and then cut the top and bottom. Then tied it to the ribbon at the top. I had to guess how big to make it. I may have made it too big, but it is easier to take some of the strips off then put them on later.
I am just on the hunt for some tights to complete the outfit and we are done! I am excited to see it on her! I will post a pic of Baby in it after she is here!
