Last Minute Tutus
When I posted pictures of Penelope and the library book bag that I made her for Christmas, Carol said that Penny looked like a girl who would like a tutu and that I should make her one for Christmas. I thought that my Christmas sewing was done and I was fully into Christmas baking. Today we are decorating sugar cookies and recently the kids helped create this gingerbread train station.
But once Carol mentioned the tutus, I felt compelled to make them because Penny IS the kinda girl who would love a tutu. And her older sister outgrew her tutu so she should have one too.
They really are easy. I just made an elastic waistband and knotted on strips of tulle. I didn't realize that you could buy tulle already in strips in the bridal section of JoAnns. I didn't fancy the idea of cutting strips of tulle. The strips made it a breeze. Thanks Carol...but no more ideas now because I need to be done Christmas sewing.
