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! ;)
