Tutu and Headband for ChicayFriday, July 25, 2014
I always like it when I get to create something so wonderful that will become a part of a little one's life event, such as 1st birthdays.
Just like these head piece and tutu that I made last year for my niece, Chicay.
The fabric flower was made from organza with white beads on the center. It measures about 2.5 - 3 inches in diameter. It was then sewn on a plain white headband that fits a toddler perfectly - not too tight, but not too loose.
I also made a tutu for her, not the usual no-sew that you see around the web. But instead, I sewed it on my mom's trusty old sewing machine.

My cousin, Zoan, wanted to have it paired with a top that has a Tinkerbell print so it will go along with the birthday party's theme. Well, I tried to look but failed. However, I came across a kiosk that does heat press t-shirt printing service. They printed a Tinkerbell character and did a heat press magic on the plain white onesie. Then I added sequins and beads to accentuate the sparkles around Tinkerbell.
And before I shipped them, I made a large pouch from the extra organza fabric to hold them together. ☺
There you go, that's Zoan and her daughter Chicay on her 1st Birthday Party wearing the tutu and headband that I made for her. Nice isn't it?! ☺
