Birthday Gift

The little man and I attended a special second birthday for my niece on Saturday (well actually cousin but the 26 year age difference is better dealt with by becoming an auntie).  Thankfully, I was able to try out some of the little girl projects I have been dying to make.  
First up is the TUTU!  Seriously, if I had a little girl she would have one in every color combo I could dream up. 
They are so darn cute!
The theme of the party was Mickey Mouse Clubhouse so I was so excited to actually find some ribbon with Minnie mouse on it.  I used bright pink, light pink, and white tulle for the tutu. 
What do you think?

Staying with the Minnie Mouse theme, I ordered black and pink iron-on flocking and created an one of a kind onesie.  Let me just tell you how much I love this stuff.  I absolutely LOVE the texture of the flocking! I also ordered some flocking in white so I can cut out labels and pictures for my son's toy bins and I am so excited to see how it turns out.  It is awesome and looks so professional if you cut it out with your Cricut and it is so easy. 
*On a side note, if you are following the directions from you might want to adjust your blade depth to 5 rather than 4.  I found that it did not cut it out completely and I had to go over it with an exacto knife.
Here's the onsie, complete with Minnie Mouse front and a little bit of ruffles on the back. 
It was my first time with ruffles, did I do okay?

Lastly, I created a matching set of clips for her to wear in her hair.  She has such beautiful curly brown hair and I know the pink will look adorable on her.  I also made a little card for the clips to go on for a nice presentation.  What do you think?

Happy Birthday Hope!
I can't wait to see how adorable you look in your new tutu!
