For the King and Queen



I managed to make a lot of progress on the list yesterday.


The King and Queen now have matching crowns for their dress up box.....



.... and matching tutus



I ended up making the tutus wrap around with a velcro closure as the recipients are very young and would struggle get them on if they were elastic waisted. I still need to shorten the pink one a little bit.
I had no idea just how how scratchy the tulle would be as I've never used it before.

The forecast is for 39 degrees today, so I'm going to sit in my little sweat shop with all of the blinds closed and sew sew sew!

Keep cool today, My advice, Sleep in the day and sew at night.

Yes, regular tulle is scratchy and a bit like chicken wire, so the skirts are meant to be worn over a leotard or singlet. The more expensive bridal tulle is very fine and a lot softer.

I adore these crowns and am going to attempt to copy them unless you have a tute in the making? You know, in all your spare time!
