A local photographer offered a mini-session at her studio for spring. It was a GREAT deal...and the background was a cute little wooden dock with a duck pond and BABY DUCKIES!!! So I had to have a cute outfit for Lotte to wear.
I had to go with the chick/duckie theme...so here is what I came up with!
Amy at Positively Splendid made THIS adorable egg shirt! Lately I've been obsessed with ruffles and so I decided on a variation of this for our photo shoot!
Amy's tutorial is very well done and I'm going to ship you over there if you need to learn how to make and assemble the ruffles. I did make my ruffles a little "rufflier", so my stripes were a little longer.
Here are my ruffles. I alternated solid yellow with a patterned yellow.
I used my biggest egg shaped cookie cutter as a stencil.
I didn't have any interfacing on hand, so I sewed my ruffles onto felt.
I just did a lot of pinning to make sure there wasn't any movement.
I used orange ric rac for legs. They were pinned under the ruffles before I started sewing.
I left them dangly, but you could hot glue the on.
Finally, I sewed on some button eyes and a felt beak.
Here is the finished product coupled with a cute yellow tutu!
I love this girl!
And everyone loves a tutu bottom!
Here is one last look at the close up! It was fabulous for pictures...the photographer loved it, and so did the duckies! Thanks Amy for the inspiration!
These AWESOME blogs are hosting parties with this little cutie this week! Thanks ladies!
