Tutu Obsession

I have to tell you that I think I am totally obsessed with making these cute as a button tutus.

This one has to be one of my favorite ones. I love the way the gray looks with the variegated yarn.

OH my gosh and this one.

My cousin Sue suggested that I make a white one white one. So I took her advice and made one. Yes, I love this one too.

My cousin Sue suggested that I make a white-on-white one. So I took her advice and made one. Yes, I love this one too.

Then I decided to take the hot pink tulle off of this one and replace the skirt with black like my friend Ayrin suggested that I do. You might have guessed, yes I like it so much more now.

I also decided to take out all of the ribbons and replace them with the tulle.

I really like it much better.

So I loved the white on white one so much that I decided to make another one. This one is much smaller than the first one.

I have so much fun searching for just the right button as well.

Then I decided to make another white top with the palest of pale pink on the bottom.

Can you believe that button?

Can you hardly stand that cute barely pink button?

I couldn't help myself. I had to have John follow along and

We decided that it might be fun for you to see me in action. HAHAHAHAHA

Take pictures of me taking pictures of the tutus. I was having such a hard time because the wind had picked up and one of my hangers did not have the little swivel handle, so I used the clothesline. It was also starting to rain. Oh well...I always try to go the extra mile for just the right photo. So what are you all obsessing over? I hope to have time to share more of my long weekend this weekend. Have a great one, ok?

John taking pictures of me taking pictures of the tutus. Can you imagine what the neighbors think when they see us? I was having such a hard time because the wind had picked up and one of my hangers did not have the little swivel handle, so I used the clothesline. It was also starting to rain. Oh well…I always try to go the extra mile for just the right photo. So what are you all obsessing over? I hope to have time to share more of my long weekend this coming weekend, so stay tuned for more. I hope you have a great one.

  4. Oh Tammy, you aren’t the only one obsessed with the tutu dresses. I love them all but I really like the white on white. Beautiful just like I thought it would be. Have you tried satin covered buttons? Just a suggestion. I have many many buttons if you need more. Did I say there was thousands of buttons in my sewing closet. Come over sometime and I will let you stock your closet too. Love you girl. sw

    Love ya!! ~ Kat

    • Hi Kat! I can only hope that the people go crazy over the little dresses in October when the weather is usually so darned cold that the only thing they can think about is covering their head with one of my warm hats. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos of me taking pictures. I knew that would help everyone realized how small some of them are. Thanks as always for loving the things that I make. Love and Hugs, Tamar

  7. I ADORE these little dresses, the possibilities are endless……..Keep going Tamara!

    • It is so sweet of you to stop by to comment. I wish that I was actually able to churn them out faster. 🙂

      • But then you may loose the enjoyment in the actual creating! 😉
