I’m a big crafter and take advantage of any time off by finding fun new things to make. Last week my mom mentioned that my sister had asked her to find a tutu for my 1 1/2 year-old niece before they visit my parents next week. I told her to check it off her list, and that I would just make one for her. I’ve seen them all over Pinterest and figured they couldn’t be that hard.
My sister had no preference on colors, so I had a blast picking out colors for the tutus. Seriously, shopping for kids is so much more fun than shopping for adults. Same goes for crafting. I went a bit overboard with the tulle and decided to make 2 tutus. They were much easier to make than I thought they would have been, just a bit time consuming to cut all the tulle into strips. I’m pretty happy with the finished product and I can’t wait to see her in them!
While I was buying the tulle, I also decided to make Sophie a cover for her crate. I’ve had towels covering it, and I figured it was time to have a cover that is less of an eyesore. All the covers I have seen in stores and online are $50+ and I knew I could make one for a fraction of that. I found a really cute pink and grey (gray?) duck cotton and whipped out a cover in no time. It looks so much better than the old towels.
Now I’m working on my crotchet skills (or lack thereof) and attempting to make an infinity scarf before it gets cold. Then, I think I am going to make an adult sized tutu for my Halloween costume.
