A Tutu for You Too?

I've made three tutus so far and it's kind of fun. They don't take very long to make and I feel very crafty when they are finished. I made Maeve a white tutu with rainbow star ribbons, but it got rejected because it was white. 

Maeve only wears green and blue. How could I have forgotten? 

On a seperate, but somewhat related note....

We were at Pottery Barn Kids today and saw pretty butterfly and peacock costumes. Both costumes would be very simple to make, but I checked the price anyway to maybe save myself some time. The cost? A whopping $119!! The materials would cost no where near that. Seriously, who pays that much for tulle, some wool felt and a leotard? 

On the other hand, if anyone wants to pay $119 for a darling hand-made tutu, I'll throw in free shipping.

Ditto-I want to see the tutus. And "tu" funny about the $119 costume offer.

Is it that easy?

My Lily asked to be a spider for Halloween. She drew a picture. I think I can make it but I have NEVER used a sewing machine. Her design includes tulle. Any advice?

Well, I might have advice, but that depends on exactly what you need advice about. Tulle is kind of a pain to work with, but managable. I have a sewing machine if you need help.
