I was going to make this for her birthday, but she may receive it tomorrow morning. Just because I'm eager and impatient. Plus she is going to be spoiled rotten at her birthday this year, so who cares?! And look at this super cute Robert Kaufman fabric I found tonite. Looks like she's getting another skirt (though not tonite, I'm going to bed)!

What should I be doing? Well, its midnight, so I should be sleeping. Instead, I'm finishing up Sylvia's tutu that I started a few hours ago. And blogging about it. There is nothing more satisfying than doing a project from start to finish in one swoop. The feeling of accomplishment is amazing, and I'm more confident now more than ever of the progress with my sewing/crafting. This was obviously a no-sew project, but I went into it with a clear method, precise cutting, a technique, and a goal. Many of my makings evolve from a "do it as you go" method, one that ends in the "try and try and try again" method. After Syl's first tutu incident of last year, I learned my lesson and went into this one confident and educated. And what does this prove? Well, practice makes perfect, research and study, and sprinkle in a bit of sleep deprivation.
