Baby's First Christmas

It's been a crazy last couple months!  I thought I would have all this time in the summer to do all these projects I had on my list, but my list got scrambled when we found out we are having a baby!  We are so very excited for her to join our family in December!  Until people knew, I couldn't post anything on here baby related, but now I can!  Yay!

Today I will share Baby's first Christmas outfit.  I know, it's only September, but since she is due a week before Christmas, I didn't want to run out of time after she was born.  Her clothing collection is growing (which is awesome), but I wanted to make her outfit for her first Christmas because we will also be taking her pictures in this outfit.  

I started with a long sleeved onesie I already had from my mom.  I cut out some ribbon and put it in the shape of a tree.  I glued it on with some fabric glue - I'll keep you all posted about how I liked it.  So far, I like the glue for the ribbon to the onesie, but not so much for the ribbon to ribbon.  It doesn't really want to stick for that. 

Then, I made her a tutu.  I couldn't find any bright green tulle, so I decided to use strips of ribbon in it's place.  I used ribbon at the top instead of elastic also.  I did find red and white tulle.  I cut the tulle and green ribbon into strips of 14 inches using a piece of cardboard cut to that length so I just had to wrap it and then cut the top and bottom.  Then tied it to the ribbon at the top.  I had to guess how big to make it.  I may have made it too big, but it is easier to take some of the strips off then put them on later.  

I am just on the hunt for some tights to complete the outfit and we are done!  I am excited to see it on her!  I will post a pic of Baby in it after she is here!
