Every year, the kids' preschool has a goods and services auction to raise money. While every year I donate a custom cake, I'm always trying to think of something I could make that I've never done before. Doing various network searches, I got the idea that this year I want to make a set of tutus for a little girl. I've finished one and I think it came out really cute! I'm planning to do a second one in blue and white and silver. And perhaps, if I have the extra supplies for it, make matching doll tutus.
I'm calling this one Chocolate Pink Tutu. It's pink with chocolate swirling through and just a hint of sparkle.
The odd thing is that when Sierra was born I was really routing for her to be more of a tom-boy. I resisted too much pink baby clothes. But I secretly really like the girly-girl and princess stuff, too. (Well, I guess it's not such a secret anymore.) After I'm done with the ones I'm making for the auction, I'll take Sierra to the craft store and let her help me pick out colors and embellishments for her own tutu.
