Once again I am stuck with pictures off the videocamera. However, I think buying a decent digital cam for home use is going to be low priority for a while yet.
These are the first two tutus. Say that ten times fast! The waistbands are grosgrain ribbon, fully elasticized. The skirts are sparkle tulle. I did the colors I thought would be least popular first in case I messed up. I didn't mess up, though. That's stunning in and of itself. I also have peachy coral (my favorite color!) and a pretty aqua set to go, and I ordered some more ribbons in lavender and pink since these were going so well. Let's be honest, lavender and pink are going to be the hot sellers. And I got some cute ditsy prints to mix and match for when I run out of grosgrain.
I am thinking about pricing these at $7-8 apiece, or 3 for $20. (There will also be coordinating wands and crowns, so a set of 3 would be a complete ensemble.) Got any feedback on the pricing?
You know you want these, all you moms of girls. Fairy Shrimp Festival is in Merced on April 22. I will be selling these sets and some gorgeous handmade jewelry from my buddy Dana in Spanish Fark. And maybe a quilt or two from Sally if she so deigns. Come one, come all!
As for me, I am just having fun finding a place to put all my girly energy. And feeling grateful that my mom got me a new sewing machine last year. And dreaming about brown-skinned babies.
