This is a very longggggg due post! And it's not that exciting to write about it anymore but I promised myself that I HAVE to write about this, about everything that I made, so one day when I flip my blog I will sniffles in proud like, woaaaaa I made this! Or maybe I'll chuckle at my silliness "elehhh macam ni pun nak tayang kat blog". LOL. Whatever it is, it's just a small promise that I made and I remember, so I have to write this ;-)
*and I have loads of pending entries, that also go into my promise entry..sigh*
It's a no-sew tutu I made for Zahra looooonnnngg time ago. The pictures dated 15th Nov 2012. Ehem..it's more than a year ago. How fast time flies haha.. ok not funny. Just laughing at my 'procrastination'.
Ok back to the no-sew tutu, it's a very very very easy stuff to make and if your kids love it, go ahead make one or two because two main thing:
1) It's freaking cheap than the store bought
2) Your daughter will go woahhhhh my mom can make this?! I thought it grows on tree!
|What you need, any color of tulle fabric you like. I picked turquoise and sea green because that's the best color combo that I found that day. Bought it at Kamdar Midvalley.|
|Make some loop and knot it. For details explanation, try to google "no sew tutu tutorial". I couldn't take a proper picture that day because as you can see, my hensem boy is busy helping me.|
|And after couple of hours and bucket of sweat (and mainly is because I'm doing it with a very helpful assistant) ta-daaaah!!! She's loving it!|
|So much that she refused to take it off|
|And wear it while having lunch and watching the iPad|
|And while helping me in the kitchen. She was at this "I want to whisk egg" stage.|
One of best hand-made stuff I've made! I wanted to make more in another colors, like pink and purple but couldn't find the time to find the fabric and let alone to do the time consuming knot. Now I understand why people just succumbed to storebought tutus...because I've turned into one! Hahaha. Bought a few tutu's dress and they cost me triple the price, but oh well..I'm paying for my time I guess.
But seriously, if you have some spare time, make this! It'll be worth it when you see your daughter twirling around, feeling all princessy ;-)
