I finished Sydney's green and pink tutu, and have already gone back to the store to buy supplies for a few more--including mine, which will be predictably pink. I'm thinking that tutus are the next big thing at our house. Sydney and I have already made plans for red ones and white ones and maybe even an orange one for Halloween. I think my inner crafter has been locked up too long, and now that I've found an easy and inexpensive project (no sewing! under $10!) I'm going off the deep end. Also, tutus coincide nicely with our current dancing obsession. If you're interested in making your own tutu, I used the looping technique from this tutorial (found through Mopsy) and the rubberband tip from this tutorial. [Sidenote: if you haven't perused the Kiddley site, I must encourage you to. Even though they stopped posting months ago, it's still full of wonderful ideas.]
Of course, Jules only gets to wear hers for limited amounts of time since she is mostly keen on ripping the tulle up and putting it in her mouth. If there's a way she can make something a choking hazard, leave it up to her to find it. She's so *smart* like that.
And tomorrow, to round off what has turned into quite the princess week, I have Disney DVDs to give away. Yay for prizes! Princess movies, in fact. But since we're more brains than beauty around here, I have a Little Einstein DVD to give away too. And, because I'm in a fit of tulle around here, I'm throwing in a little extra something for the winners.
I'm off to twirl around with baskets of laundry. Exciting.
