I am very happy to have finished another birthday present for Stella this morning. I started Monday morning cutting the tulle for the tutu from Little Things to Sew. This morning I was able to start sewing it and finished it very quickly. I am very happy because I am usually very slow to finish anything.
It is very purple. I would have loved to tried to make one like the example in the book I love the colors in the book and am starting to get a little sick of purple. But it is the girl's favorite color and I did think she should love her present.
The tulle I bought from Joann's was all around 60 -70 inches wide not over 100 like the book said most tulle was. I didn't look at the other colors. I just bought all the purple. And I should have bought one more yard. I didn't realize that until I started cutting. So I think if I bought more tulle and wider tulle it would be a little more full. But Stella is a little peanut so I think this will work.
I think I'll do the baby carrier from Little Things to sew next. I'm going to make as many things I can for her birthday from the book for the cover to cover challenge. There are only 5 months left and I just became motivated to try make everything in it. I want to make her a birthday dress too. Maybe I should do the tea party dress so she can have a matching baby dress? Her birthday is one month away so I better get going.
