Tu-tu, onesie and headband...Cheap and easy gift!

I made this onesie, tutu and headband set for my new niece yesterday! I feel like it's an easy and cheap gift...most of the supplies I had on hand.
  • a glue gun (just for the headband)
  • elastic or ribbon...to tie the tulle to.
  • tulle...either from the bolt or a 6 inch roll of it... that's what i use.
  • felt, jewel and cut up tights for the headband...you can use a flower, ribbon or whatever you have on hand.
  • a onesie and scrap fabric to hand stitch on a monogram
  • spray adhesive (optional...I think it would stay on with just the stitching on the letter)
  • an hour to put it all together and WA-LA!
p.s. you don't need sewing skills or any skills, really, for this project! That's the best!




Oh yea, and a less than thrilled 4 year old boy to model it for you! Secretly he volunteered to be the model!
I especially love it with the buzz shirt and striped "leggings" if you will!

I LOVE this! My baby girl turns a year old in September and, believe it or not, I'm already looking at ideas to make her an outfit! I stink with a sewing machine and am SO glad to see someone handstitch a monogram--perfect. Thanks for sharing!
