Easy Peasy Lemon Squeasy!

I just completed THE most satisfying project TO DATE!!! It was fast, fun and looks more sophisticated than it really is. (The hardest part was setting up my brand new sewing machine which took me the better part of an hour!)
When my father saw it, he said, "I thought you were going to make one of those."
I was taken aback, "I did."
He seemed taken aback himself, "You made that?"
"Well, that's clever!"
Woot! I'd consider that a compliment!

Anyway, without further ado...

My little girl! Yes, I helped make her.. but that's not what I'm talking about today.

My little girl and her brand new tutu! That's right! A tutu!

You can't tell in the picture but the tutu is made of baby pink and lavender strips of tulle.

I found the tutorial here, though, it was so easy, I didn't need to look at it again after the first time. Total time spent (not including shopping for materials) was about 30 minutes, give or take.

Is there anything prettier than a little girl and her first tutu? Any tutu for that matter....
