A purple tutu and some whining

Myra recently rediscovered a cute tutu that a good friend made for us, but it has gotten too short to be a proper tutu (and Myra has decided that it is a hat), so I made her a new, longer one.
The gold one on her head was the original that Hayley made, and I followed her basic method.  It's strips of tulle and ribbon tied into a crocheted elastic headband.  Super simple, but it made Myra very happy!
It's good for twirling.  Although it definitely doesn't match the weird, too small orange romper that she insisted on wearing.

In other news...  Oh wait, there is no other news.  I haven't sat at my machines for over a week, so I have nothing to report except for the worst case of lost mojo that I have ever had.  Seriously, I even have had some time to sew, I just can't convince myself to do it.  Both maternity blouse and dress are cut out, but I haven't even fused interfacing or threaded the machines.  Here's hoping that the mojo comes home soon!

  1. aren't you such a COOL MOM to let Myra wear a tutu on her head and too small orange romper, and make a new tutu with fun ribbons!

  3. I found it hard to do anything when I was pregnant. You have my sympathy. Cute little tutu!

  4. Love the "hat" and the new tutu. She's ready for Mardi Gras!

    Your mojo will return - I think that I went almost 3 or 4 months without wanting to sew once. And then one day, I sat down at my machine and started churning things out everyday.

  5. ha, my sister transformed her toddler tutu into a hat when she was about 6, so clearly that's just what old tutus are SUPPOSED to be (and isn't Myra smart to have figured that out?).

    Girl, if you didn't sew for the next FIVE YEARS you would still be ahead of me in sewing with what you've made the past year. I'd take a small R&R break, if the mood takes you. That first trimester is ugly anyway (as you perfectly well know). I think I pretty much slept through mine both times.

  6. Cute! Cute! I think my mojo is off on vacation with yours! ;-D I've sewn very little in the past few weeks.

  7. Yes I am quite amazed you haven't sewn 3 garments already this week! I didn't sew anything during my pregnancy at all.. so I understand the feeling well.

  8. Ha! cutest outfit ever...well, cutest model ever. She'd make a paper bag look charming :)

    Don't worry about your lost mojo. It'll come back when the time is right. In the meantime, rest up and indulge in some of your other interests :)

  9. She looks so cute! That's brilliant.

    Hope you find your mojo very soon. I'm still looking for mine (and I am not even pregnant).

  11. Adorable!! You'll get your mojo back! I do agree that maternity clothes seem to rob the most avid sewer of her mojo. I don't believe I've seen maternity wear at all on the sewing blogs (ie. Amanda). . .

  12. Oh, good luck with the mojo - I hate it when mine goes away, though that's a good time to catch up on reading for me!

  13. Myra is too, too cute! I think your body is telling you to take it easy. Easier said than done for those Type-A personalities I know... Just don't be too hard on yourself. You're making a new person!

  14. Twirly girls have a mind of their own, even little ones! Your mojo will strike an a most "unexpected" time!
