Last year I fell in love with all those adorable tutu’s I saw floating around the DIY scene. Since then I’ve made a couple of my own and even had someone request to buy one!  Looking ahead a bit I’m thinking of making them for craft bazaar’s this fall.  I made the following tutu’s by cutting strips of tulle, knotting them around some sewn elastic and weaving some cute ribbon on it. A quick and easy way to make your baby girl the princess of her Birthday party!

This is the one I made for my niece’s 1st Birthday. It went perfectly with birthday onsie.

I call it the Strawberry Shortcake tutu. 🙂


This one was done for my cousin’s girl who was turning 1.  She loves all things zebra print!

I used the same method to make my halloween costume last year. I just added lots of feathers!  I was the Roadrunner and my adorable bf was Wile E. Coyote.

Hi everyone!  I’m so excited to start my very first blog.  I’ve never done anything like it but I’m giving it a go!  I would tell you a little about myself but I’ve already don’t that on the “About Me” page. 

I wanted to start this blog because I’m stuck behind a desk for 40+ hours a week working with accounts and numbers and about 35 of those 40+ hours I find myself day dreaming of crafting.  I mean really…who day dreams about crafting?  Shouldn’t I be dreaming about someone like Ryan Reynolds doing pullups in nothing but a pair of sweat pants? So, while not dreaming of Ryan Reynolds, I have made a list (well, several to be honest) of crafts, repurposed, or refashioned things I want to do.  The list has been accumulating for the last couple of months and it’s time to tackle it and you can share in my journey!

Really? Ryan Reynolds...or crafts...?
