I came across some tutu instructions on Etsy a while back. My good friend Emily made me one for Sweet Girl already but I wanted to learn for myself so I bought them and have made a few. They are adorable!! Sweet Girl loves to wear hers and dances all over the house saying she is a ballerina! I need to get this girl into a Y dance class! Here is one of them to give you an idea on what they look like.
I also came across this darling idea for scrap scarves. You just use up your scrap stash (mine is ridiculously huge!) and make cute scarves! I made one for Asher and Violet and pictures will come later. I think I will make up a few more and throw them in the store.
I am all caught up with Christmas. I really tried to do most everything either made by myself or someone on Etsy. Kind of a handmade pledge of sorts. I really want to support creative artists and steer away from mass produced crap that fills my house and becomes junk. I am really pleased with the result (fewer but more meaningful gifts for my family, and supporting independent artists!) I made puppets for the new theater we will get for the family, made Violet a Cinderella quilt, some felt crowns and super hero masks with capes from a fellow Etsyer, and slippers. The rest is store bought stuff. Pretty good I think! A lot of imaginative play stuff. I have decorated the house and we just need to put up the tree.
