Someone's Having a Baby! (And No, It's Not Me!)

We found out today that someone very special to us is having a baby girl!  We knew she was going to have a baby but I was super excited when she announced it would be a little princess joining us this summer.  When I hear baby girl, I hear tutu!  So, as soon as I got home from work today, I started working on a special tutu for a very special little girl!  I was just thinking last night that it would be a lot of fun to do a tutu in pink and brown.  I used the shimmer tutu and a ribbon waist.  I think it turned out very cute, if I do say so myself.  I made a matching headband to go with it.  I'm really liking the poofy headbands these days.  I decided to put a bow in the middle instead of a button.
What do you think?

Pink and brown tutu

I am considering posting a listing on Etsy.  I think pink and brown will probably be big again this spring, it has been in the last few years.  Using the shimmer tulle makes it slightly more expensive to make so I'll probably list it at $15 instead of $10.
I also think I'm going to invest in a stand to display my tutus on for photos. I know that will look better than the floor and not all tutus fit my girls--and I can't always get them to cooperate either! Anyone have a suggestion as to the best kind to get or best place to get one?


  1. I love pink and brown, great color combo and this tutu is so sweet!

  2. Thanks, Trina! My friend loved the tutu. I think I need to make some more with pink and brown! :)
