Oh Me Oh My

I made a tutu dress for the girl yesterday. Her 3rd birthday is in a couple weeks and I knew she would love it. I set to work with my 50 yards of tulle only to discover it wasn't nearly enough. She insisted on putting it on, hilarious, half of her covered, the other not so much! It reminded me of those masks that are part woman part man! Ha ha! She is hollering and begging me to finish it NOW! So we set off to Michaels where many more spools of tulle are purchased (I knew I would want to make another once hers was complete). We come home and after the afternoon rigmarole I sit down to finish the dress. I am so excited to give it to her. She wakes up from her nap, sees it, loves it, puts it on and promptly begins screaming that she can't see her feet and wants to wear it as a SKIRT. Ungrateful we take it off and I list it on Etsy. Now I get to make the princess (as she refers to herself) a tutu because "THAT is what she WANTS". Whatev, Ruby. I just love it and wish I had a more cooperative daughter to wear it. (Not to say my Lu isn't, but this dress would swallow that tiny peanut whole!)

I got the first two pics after asking her to tell me about Grampa pretending to be the Cookie Monster yesterday:

But THIS reflects how she REALLY feels about Mama's gift

Ain't she a sweetie? :)


  1. awww, very cute!! I'm making my daughter a tinkerbell tutu dress for halloween. I haven't started it yet, but I've got 125 yards of green and white tulle ready and waiting for me :)
