onesie tutu

Boys ROCK...but when I have a girl I fully plan to dress her in tutus all the time.
 My cousin Cody and Mersadie are having a Baby GIRL at the end of next month so I wanted
to test out my crafty skills for their present... I always thought the onesie tutus were cute, so I started blog stocking to find a good tutorial...I came across THIS. Making it easy enough for even me to do it!!

 I love it:) sorry I took it house doesn't have the best lighting...

I actually used a head band rather than elastic...
I would say its the way to go for the baby onesies. 
Plus I wanted to make a head band to match.

 I ended up cutting a bit of the band off, but its ok because the tulle will cover it.
I did a zig zag stitch in the front back and both sides so it wont rip off:)

once you sew it on tie your tulle all around.... after I was done i went around and snipped 
off the top of the knot so it has a clean edge...because I was not planning on covering with ribbon.:)

  4. This is adorable! My children are all grown, I have one married and am having grandbaby fever! Would adore to have a little girl to dress up like this!!!
    Your little boy has the sweetest smile -
    Hope you have a blessed day,

  5. I am surprised. I have a 2 year old girl. I never promoted the tutu/pink thing, but she is all over it nonetheless. She would have LOVED a tutu like this even at a few months old. For now she'll have to be happy with a bigger girl version! Thanks for sharing! I am your newest follower. I would love it if you came over to Greetings From the Asylum and followed me too!
