Tutu Cute!


The past 3 days, Quinn has insisted on wearing her tutu. All day. Everywhere we go. I decided it might be nice for her to have another one (even the neighbor said "Oh, you're wearing your tutu again today!). So off to Etsy I went in search of a new one, or at least a pattern for one. Then I realized there was probably a free tutorial out there somewhere, and I hit the jackpot! I found the best one at the vermillion rules! blog (you can get the instructions by clicking here). If you have time, read her blog posts- she will crack you up!
Within an hour of reading the directions, we were ready & out the door to JoAnn's. Quinn chose bright pink, purple and light pink for her tutu. It took a better part of the day to cut and attach the tulle, but it was more than worth it! I definitely think I could do the next one quite a bit faster now that I know what I'm doing. Quinn loves her tutu and has been dancing around the house & the yard all morning. I'm thinking of making a brown & cream or brown & orange for a trip to the pumpkin farm & some fall/birthday photos. These are so much fun to make and very easy! Is there ever an occaision where adults can wear tutus without looking a bit too eccentric? Because I really kind of want one for myself! ;)

I already said it on FB, but that is so cute! And I think you should just make yourself one anyway. Even if you never get to where it anywhere, you and Quinn can certainly have tutu parties around the house on the third Saturday of every month...or something like that! :)
