Baby’s Birthday Week Takeover: Birthday Outfit

   

It's Your Birthday Baby!

I can’t wait for Ali to wear her birthday outfit. It is so girly and I love it. I made her 2 onesies (one for the cake smash and one for after) with my silhouette cameo and heat transfer vinyl. If you do not have a die cut machine like the Silhouette you can design your own onesie from Zazzle.  Her tutu is a simple no sew tutu that I will show you how to make below.  I love having the tutu be removable so that she can take it off for her cake smash and get all messy. Then after she is cleaned up she has another cute onesie and can put her party tutu back on. Birthday-Girl-Outfit-DIY-Tutu-9

Step 3. Cut 5 to 6 inch wide strips of tulle to 2 times your desired length or longer (it is fine if the strips are not exactly straight). Layer 6-8 strips and fold in half.

Step 7. Trim the edge of the tutu so the edges are even.
