About Monkey Sew, Monkey Do:
I'm happy to introduce you to Georgia Goeken - another talented Mom from my due date group! Georgia is a stay at home mom of 6 trying to earn extra income with something that she "LOVES doing". She has 4 girls and 2 boys, so she lives a pretty full & busy life. She taught herself to do all of the beautiful & creative things she sells. She said she was motivated to learn to make Tutu's because her 5 year old daughter thinks she's a princess, so has to have everything. :o)

My Experience With Monkey Sew, Monkey Do:
About a month ago Georgia & I started talking about doing a review/giveaway. She offered me a 2 toned TuTu skirt for my baby girl & a 3 color TuTu skirt for the winner of the Giveaway. My baby's 1st birthday falls on Mardi Gras day this year! I thought it would be fun to use Mardi Gras as the theme for her little birthday party, & of course she'll wear her birthday TuTu to the parades Mardi Gras day as well!
I eagerly awaited the TuTu skirt. I stalked the Monkey Sew, Monkey Do Facebook page and was so excited when I saw a picture that matched the color description I gave Georgia!
This is the pic that was posted after Georgia finished making it!
I had a nice little surprise when I opened the package from Monkey Sew, Monkey Do & saw that it came with a matching purple daisy for her hair!
This is how it was shipped:

And this was my very 1st glimpse of it in person!
We'll probably do her party the weekend before Mardi Gras, but I dressed her in the TuTu skirt about a week ago to take pictures for you all to see. Georgia did a GREAT job! This TuTu is so cute! I requested the colors purple & green & added a onesie I had special made elsewhere. At the time I didn't know that Monkey Sew, Monkey Do could make custom onesies or else I would've ordered one from them! I'm sure it would've come out much nicer if they'd done it - especially if they added some gemming to it.
I nearly squealed when I saw how cute she looked! I had fun taking pictures of her in this - so, so, so cute! Even more than that, the tulle was super soft! The crocheted waistband has a lot of give in it, so I think it will grow with her & fit for years to come.
This was a photo flop because she was starting to fall backwards, but I think it shows how full the skirt is.
This shows the flower clip nicely & how pretty the colors of the Tu Tu skirt blend together.
It was so soft, that she couldn't resist touching it & playing with it.
The wind made it blow around nicely in the breeze. This will give you a good idea of how soft the tulle is - not that stiff scratchy stuff at all!
The wind blowing the tulle skirt around.
Isn't it so cute?!?
Because the waist is a made of a soft crochet, she was able to move around easily.
I can't wait for her birthday pictures!
I got her to stand for about 10 seconds by herself to take this picture for you, so you could see what it looks like standing.
The Bottom line:
You won't regret working with Monkey Sew, Monkey Do. The prices are fantastic!!! The things offered are very creative & different, & Georgia & Amy are constantly adding new & even more original items. I highly recommend them.
