I Like Big Bows...

I have been working on this project for awhile now. I didn't get the idea from one specific link. I have seen onesies, appliqu├ęs, bibs all over etsy and Pinterest with this saying and decided to make my own for Miss Violet.

Look at that cuteness! I love it. The whole ensemble was quite easy to make.
Supplies:
  • Onesie, long sleeve or short sleeve. You can also use a t-shirt.
  • Big Bow, check out my tutorial HERE.
  • Tulle or ribbon
  • Elastic or ribbon for tutu waistband
  • Stained by Sharpie markers
I don't have any type of cutting machine so to get the lettering for the shirt I printed off the phrase, I used two different fonts. I then put the printed letters underneath and did a combination of tracing and eyeballing the font design. The Stained by Sharpie markers are awesome. I may be a little bit in love with them. They have a paint brush like tip so it makes it quite easy to use. Almost like you are painting with the markers. Super awesome. I bought mine at Walmart but have seen them in craft stores too. They are made specifically for drawing on fabrics.
Next up was the tutu. I made a half tutu. I didn't need it to be full all the way around because I made the tutu for a photo op, not an outside/everyday outfit. I used a light purple tulle along with a darker organza ribbon. There are a billion and one tutorials one making tutus so I am not going to go into detail. Basically cut your tulle to the desired length and tie it to your waistband. For this one I used a white satin ribbon, so it is an apron like tutu, it works well for little ones like Violet. I tie it around her waist and make a bow. If you can see it in the pictures I knotted the ends of the darker organza to give the tutu a little pop.
The last step in making the ensemble was the big boutique bow, tutorial here.
I am happy that I took the time to make this. Violet has started to be known for her bow wearing, though she doesn't wear such large bows everyday.
I think this picture says "what do these crazy grownups want from me?"
I love this one, her little feet look so adorable.
Do you like big bows and cannot lie?
