Make your own darling play table!

I have been wanting a table and chair set for Addison to be able to play at - color, paint, play dough, etc. This tutorial is my head of course I am replacing the fabric with a table sized tutu skirt...or maybe a thin tutu layer over the fabric so that it is not transparent...hmmm...

NEW Item - Crochet Tutu Dresses!!

I am so excited about the newest addition to my etsy shop - Crochet Tutu Dresses. These little dresses are adorable, unique, and super comfy. Currently Lavender and Hot Pink are available. Dresses are made with soft, stretchy crochet tube tops and tulle skirt is attached. Each dress also comes with a matching crochet headband and detachable flower (can be placed on the dress or headband). These will fit newborn all the way up to about 12 months. I am working on toddler sizes and hope to have those available soon. I can also attach a halter neck tie if desired, though these little dresses are sure to stay put on their own too. These dresses would be adorable for newborn or baby photos, 1st birthday attire, Halloween (add a pair of wings and you have a little fairy!), or simply just a cute and fun dress to wear. I hope you like them as much as I do! Check my shop for these appearing soon!!

Such a cute mod podge craft!

Ok, I have not held up my original plan to post a crafty idea every week, but I am still going to post crafts that intrigue me as I find them. This one has my interest and I am excited to take it on! My only problem is Addison is a book-addict and I'm not sure she could happily part with any. I may have to find a clearance board book at Borders to accomplish this project.

Pretty Partridge, blogger and fellow-etsy shop owner has some great ideas and this project is one of my favorites! Pics from Pretty Partridge. Check it out!

Tutus for the ultimate Halloween costume!

Halloween is right around the corner and what better than a custom tutu costume! Tutus can be made in any length and color combination for the perfect costume! Add embellishments such as ribbon streamers, pompoms, flowers, crystals, etc to create the ultimate custom costume that is sure to be unique!

Some ideas for tutus that you can easily pair with solid colored shirts, leotards and tights:

Witch - purple and black tutu or orange and black tutu (pair with witch hat)
Pumpkin - orange tutu with green ribbon
Tinkerbell - green tutu with purple ribbon (add some wings and a magic wand)
Fairy - any color tutu but I think of hot pink or purple (again, add wings and a wand)
Rainbow bright - tutu in rainbow colors with rainbow colored ribbon streamers
Bumblebee - yellow and black tutu
Cheerleader - tutu in team colors
Ladybug - red tutu with black pompoms
Flower - any color tutu with rosette embellishments
Bride - white tutu dress with tulle veil

Contact me for a custom listing for any of these or other ideas you have - I would love to help you create a memorable Halloween for your little one with a custom tutu!
