a handmade birthday: tutu

Here's what my eldest just got for her birthday:

and to go with the tutu, a matching headband:

I used this tutorial for the tutu, and the headband is the same concept, just on a smaller scale. It worked up quickly and easily - and the results are just glorious.

(The rainbow colors were the birthday girl's choice. And a much better choice than the dull pinks and purples I was contemplating.)

Anyway, I recommend this if there's a little girl in your life you want to make something for. I'm contemplating making mini ones and sewing them onto onsies for the twins.

peace of Christ to you,

That's really cute! When you posted that link I decided to make one for Emma for Christmas. Now I need to figure out some good boy dress up clothes for Gregory, otherwise I'm going to have a little boy begging for his tutu. LOL
