On Friday, my niece turned one. One year ago Friday (actually Thursday, it was a long labor!) I was driving down to Fallbrook to meet my precious little niece. It is weird how even after having my own kids, Emma can hold such a huge piece of my heart. I guess as parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, you never know how much love your heart can hold until another little piece of joy enters your life. And then your heart overflows.
And of course Auntie Talia spoils the heck out of little Mems, as she is affectionately called. I love it because as much as I love my boys, and I do, they can't wear tutus. So Emma's birthdays and Christmases and anything else are going to be filled with the frilliest it gets, because being the only girl in a household of boys, I need frills!!
So here is what I made her. I started with a super cute purple tutu from Costco. I know, Costco, but they were so cute I got two. Purple is my favorite color, so it worked! Then I decided a tutu just wasn't enough, I had to have something to go with it. A little white shirt with the letter 'E'. Perfect.
- Purple material
- Green lace type material for the 'E'
- White onesie
- Sewing adhesive
- Sewing machine
At first, I tried to cut the material using the CriCut. Fail. You can kinda see in the picture that the material is all bunched up and kinda cut. Bummer. But I found a way!
Happy Birthday, baby girl. Auntie loves you!!
