Girls just wanna have fun! :)

Hey everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your day! I ventured to Joann Fabrics today to purchase some tulle to start making the flower girls tutus. I ended up getting a color of tulle called “Toast”. Other colors I have seen were too dark or too light but this one was just right! (starting to sound like Goldilocks!)

First I cut the tulle into strips…now I don’t go by any measurements just start cutting and make a straight line from one end to the other! You fold the strip of tulle in half and wrap it around the elastic band like you would a scarf.

You keep on doing it again and again until the whole elastic band is filled up!

Final Product!:

Tada! It took just about 4 yards of tulle..and that’s all I bought but I finally got 1 done now 3 more to go! 🙂





Just a rainy day…

Hey! It is beyond crazy the amount of views I have been getting! Everyday becomes the “most viewed” day! It is very exciting so thank you for everyone who has jumped on in for the ride ! 🙂 Yesterday I accomplished another run, it was almost the same just a tad bit shorter because I was starting to feel the soreness! Yikes! Today I can barely walk my ankles and shins are in pain. 😦 Because it is raining buckets here I will not be able to venture outside so I am thinking about doing some sort of exercise on On Demand. If you have this you should check it out! There are some really awesome workouts that kick your butt!

Most of the flower girl mothers have order the outfits from my last blog! Now I have to go get some tulle to start working on those tutus.

That’s about it! Maybe I will go tanning tonight so I can get a small taste of summer, I always call it my 15 minutes in paradise! 8) Enjoy your day everyone and stay dry if you live anywhere near me!





Girls Rule, Boy Drool!

I was thinking and I have never told you about who is standing in our wedding for children. Well, I have to say we are having 4 very precious girls being our flower girls! & NO BOYS! 😉 nothing against boys, but these 4 girls are way too adorable to just be sitting in a chair at our wedding! Two of the girls Lexis & Ava are my cousins, and the other two girls Jenna & Tessa are Collin’s nieces.

For their attire I will be making them tutus to wear! Adorable right? I was not fond of most flower girl dresses and it will add a little funk that I like. 🙂 I am thinking making them a champagne color because it is in my dress. Also I am having them wear white t-shirts, white leggings, and some sandals. Check out what I found:

shirt.

leggings.

sandals.

Today I started making the elastic band for the tutu, you just sew together a piece of elastic band that you can buy at any craft store to the right size for who you are making it for 🙂

 

Very easy to do! Try it out, hopefully tonight I will be able to go out and get tulle to work on some tutus!
