Tonight I finished the last of Lucy's Christmas presents. We only give the kids three gifts a piece for Christmas, and two of Lucy's were being made by me. One was a doll mei tai. She loves to wear her baby dolls in the pouch sling her Auntie Erin made her, but is always trying to put our Ergo on her back. Obviously, that doesn't work. So, I decided to make her one out of fabric I already had. Here are the results.
The other gift I made Lucy was a tutu. Every little girl needs a tutu to twirl around in and play dress up with. And Lucy is a pretty girly girl, so I figured she'd be all over this. I used this pattern, and I think I like the end result. It is much poofier than I expected. (Be sue to note that when they say making it a certain way gives way to lots of poof, it really does...even if it doesn't look like it at first.) The colors are purple, green and blue. The ribbon around the wait has these same colors in it. The tulle has a bit of shimmer to it, which is nice.
I don't have a picture, but I made another one slightly different than this for Lucy's friend, Danielle. She is the ONLY other girl in Lucy's Sunday School class, and is such a sweetie (plus she loves to dress up). I think I like how Dani's was less poofy. I wish I'd taken a picture of it. Oh well.
