DIY Budget Friendly Princess Treasures (Part 2)

Hello again!

This is Part 2 of my DIY  Princess Treasures Blog Series.

Those of you  who are coming back, Thank You!   Those of you  who are just joining us, welcome!

Let us refresh our memories.

These  series of blogs all began when I was getting ready for my daughter’s birthday.   You can read about it here.  When I saw the fast growing interest, I decided to make an extension of the topic.  I got carried away and couldn’t finish the entire thing in one blog. Here is the blog.  I guess everyone is all caught up… Let’s begin!

Reminder :  You are here for  BUDGET and DIY

We have an idea and we gathered materials… now what?

Get Rid of Your Worst Critic in Your Head!

You know what I mean… What if it does not turn out the way I planned?   What if other mothers think I am crazy for letting my girl wear this nonsense?  What will my parents and in-laws think?

My answers : 

  • If it does not turn out the way you planned, take a moment and  look at your daughter’s face.  She will probably have a big grin on her face.  All the girl time you  two shared is worth more than the $15 dollar project .  Your daughter  WILL ROCK her new outfit!
  • Who cares what the other mothers think!  It’s your daughter’s day.   She is the center of the attention and she is in the spot light.
  • Your parents or in-laws  won’t understand?  That is okay… don’t show them the creative creation!   You can have a “play date” party with kids and have a sensible “dinner out” with parents and in-laws  where your daughter can wear the outfit her grandparents have bought for her.

DIY Tutorials

Gather your ideas and skills.

Tutorial: Sew a Strait LIne @ sewastraightline.com

  • If you feel like your skills are bit rusty, try the design with news paper  or recycled gift wrapping paper.  If you mess up, no harm done.
  • Give yourself enough time to try out new things.  When plan A doesn’t work, you have enough time for plan B.
  • If you are still not sure about your skill, find someone who can do it for you.  Someone whom you KNOW can execute the project the way you want.

Time to Create The Look!

For this look, I want to use the tutu tutorial, for the skirt,  Ruffle Chart for ideas on what type of ruffle I want around the sleeves, and Ruffle Refashion for the detail on the shirt and finish the outfit with a ribbon around the waist.

I was only going to use the skirt portion.  Use Cotton Candy Skirt Tutorial to build the skirt  then add big flowers. I would also use the Lace Sleeved Tank Top tutorial  to complete the outfit.

I liked the skirt on this one… Use the  Double Layered Square Skirt Tutorial to get the look.

For this look, use the Carrie Bradshaw Tutu Skirt tutorial to create the skirt,  for tank top, use the glittered stripped top tutorial for an idea on how to add glitter on the straps.   I would also  use ruffle chart to add ruffle below the glitter.

 

This completes the outfit portion of the series.  I will blog  about hair, accessories, party decoration, and invitation ideas on next blog. Thank you for sharing your creativity with me.  I had so much fun, I hope you did too.
