Back in October my sister, mom and I visited my sister's BFF and were part of an audience for a live taped show featuring this great project...the Halloween Tutu.
After the show I wandered into Joann Fabrics and picked up some gorgeous tulle and ribbon. I needed petals or spiders or something to float in the tulle but I couldn't find anything I liked so the Tutu went on the back burner for the time being. Every time I entered my craft room I knew the tulle was there begging to be made into a fun skirt for a little girl to play with but I couldn't do it. Not just any flower would do. One day in Michael's, I frequent craft stores, I found them the perfect petals and they were in the bridal section. Who knew! I bought up a bunch and headed home to construct a fairy tale tutu.
I never worked with tulle before, all of my projects have been from cotton materials which are incredibly easy to work with but tulle has a bit of a mind of its own. Its so delicate and light and since my eye sight is so bad it was hard to tell when I had gathered all of the ends, sometimes I missed a few, but finally I made it. Isn't it beautiful.
On another note, a little girl I've know for over 13 years had just turned 18!!!!!! Can you believe it. She's grown into a beautiful young lady and will be off to college this year.
