"Rock Candy" Double Layered Tutu

Wednesday, May 4, 2011


Here are two views of the new Pinkalicious tutu (inspired by the children's book Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann).  I wanted to do a very girly girl type of tutu (by the way, I was also thinking of naming it girly girl!).  It turned out even better than I had hoped.  The new shocking pink shimmer tulle is like a bubblegum pink and I love it!  It is the lighter of the two pinks.  I am going to order a whole lot more of it and it will also be featured in the breast cancer fundraiser tutu that I will custom make for the winner. 

I made a new tutu tonight that I haven't yet taken pictures of.  It will be called The Sweetie Bug...and it is red shimmer and black shimmer as a bit of a ladybug look (3x red to 1x black).  It is super pretty.  I may also add black dots to it as I hope to develop it into a bit of a Halloween costume for my Sweetie Bug this fall.  I also want to make a honey bee costume in the near future.  Yes, I am already thinking Halloween...I am just a wee bit of a planner (can you tell?).  I hope to have several costume choices available, which will of course include ballerina, fairy and princess.

I received a wonderful shipment in the mail today...my cute fabric flower appliques that are pink ribbon themed.  So, next week once my new pink grosgrain ribbon arrives I will begin several sets of clippies for the fundraiser.  I may incorporate a few into the tutu as well...we'll see what inspiration hits at the time!  Wow, that's a lot of pink!
