Time is going so fast! I can't believe my little Caitlyn is almost one. *Tear!*
We decided to do an Elmo themed birthday party for her since she absolutely loves Elmo and Sesame Street. Of course - I had to make her the perfect outfit to go with this theme. Since I take every opportunity to make my girls look as girly as possible, I made her a birthday tutu. I made this tutu the same way I made her black tutu a few months back for Mother's Day. This time, I alternated red and yellow tulle, then added a few strands of blue tulle and some ribbon. I'm very happy with the way it turned out, it is so happy and cheerful looking - which mirrors her little personality perfectly!
For her shirt, I thought I would experiment with making a felt applique of Elmo and the number one. I am very much a procrastinator, so I left myself very little time to get this part done. I was rushing to make it the morning of her pictures! I bought various colors of felt and pieced together Elmo's face. Had I spent more time on it, I know I could have captured the image of Elmo better. However, considering I threw it together in less than fifteen minutes I was ok with it!! I also threw together a simple four loop bow on an alligator clip. :)
