Tutu...

On the weekend the childerbeasts spent the night with my folks & when we came to pick them up on Sunday morning we were greeted by our daughter wearing a tutu, some bunny ears & yelling 'bo-ing' as she bounced around the lounge room doing her best impression of a tutu wearing bunny rabbit. I wish I had had my camera with me...

Anyway, the sight of Lo in a tutu was super cute so I decided that I needed to make her one of her very own. This is my first attempt at tutu making & if I do say so myself I did rather well without a pattern! This is what 2 metres of tulle & a 1/4 of a metre of quilting cotton look like when assembled Lolo's bottom!

Naturally she didn't want to participate in a photoshoot so these shots were the best I could do. Prima Ballerina...
