Well HELLO everyone and hello Thursday! This has been an AWESOME first week for the Frog's Blog! I cannot believe that we already have followers and the number of page views goes up significantly everyday! Who would have thought?? I am so excited about the blog and all the love it is getting! I cannot say thank you enough for making my first week in blog land so fabulous!!

Today, I want to share some of the little onesie tutus I have made. A few of them are tutu-cute and others were a major craft FAIL! Now, that I have made a few there are definitely some things to remember when creating these sweet little numbers. Here is the first I made...a practice run if you will.

HAHAHA! Isn't that terrible?!? I was practicing and
did not want to spend money on something that I new
I would mess up so I used what I had here at home. A
Onesie from the last baby (a boy) and left over tulle that
my mama had from a wedding. It actually wasn't/isn't that
horrible and I did sew everything correctly. I like to call it my
 tomboy onesie! Not too shabby for my first try!

I know this picture is awful but I took it with
my old cell phone. I forgot to snap shots with my
camera before I delivered it. Oops! This (and the next 2 pictures)
is the tutu set I made for the PTA auction that I think
I mentioned in a previous post.

The matching headband w/ my attempt at a spiky
bow. I seriously need some more practice with bow making!

AND the baby flip flops! OMGoodness, I love these!
Can't you just imagine chub-a-wubby tiny toes sticking
out of the ends of these.
So here is the DISASTER I refer to as a
MAJOR CRAFT FAIL!
Sure it looks all cutesy-wootsy on my tiny little
wire dress form but if you could see this thing in person.
I would just like to caution anyone attempting to make a
Onesie Tutu- be sure you know where all of that
material is when sewing! With a ton of tulle it is VERY difficult to
keep track of it and the onesie! Ahhh, live and learn I guess.
Had I been more careful this would have been beyond tutu-cute!
Lastly, here is one that I made for my niece.
Totally ruffled out!
Ruffles around the waist!
AND ruffles on the bum!

Over the weekend I plan to spend some time organizing my craft room and clearing out all of the JUNK in the house that everyone keeps tripping over. It is going to be a great weekend for the local GOODWILL store. I am also planning on working on two of the designs I have stored in my head for new tutus!!
I will be back tomorrow with an update! Happy Thursday all!
