Braley’s Baylor tutu =)
I have a new niece! I get to go see her soon, and I’m taking her a special Baylor outfit that her Daddy requested. Evidently sports paraphernalia is expensive. So I embellished a little onesie I got for four dollars at old navy with a B (for Baylor and Braley) and did a little running stitch with perl cotton. I used the light steam-a-seam and just followed their instructions, using plain old Times New Roman.
For the tutu, I lucked out at Jo-Ann’s and found a dark green and yellow organza already cut on a roll. I like it because it’s not as scratchy as tulle can be, and it was in the right colors. It took two full rolls. I made it just like I did the Ballerina Basket I made Serenity for Halloween, except I used actual elastic. It’s probably a little long, but since I didn’t have a nine month old to test it on (that’s how old she’ll be at football season =) I decided he could cut it down if he wanted then. And I just tied the elastic in the back so the waist can be adjusted too! Easy peasy!
