A friend of mine has a cute little girl who just had her 2nd birthday. I wanted to try making a tutu skirt for the occasion. I know that all little girls love to dress up.
There are a lot of tutorials on YouTube on how to make no-sew tutu skirts so help yourself to that resource and decide which one you want to try. I made the one with a ribbon waist band so that the skirt can be tied on and removed for those frequent bathroom visits. The skirt really turned out well. I used light pink and cream tulle to match the really cute hot pink and cream polka dot gross grain ribbon that I found at my local fabric store. I also added hot pink satin skinny ribbons throughout the skirt to add more interest. It turned out to be a very full skirt. She loved it!
The octopus birthday card card was cut from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. I had a scrap piece of pastel tartan paper which really made a very cute sea creature. I added goolie eyes to the body and Stickles to the pirate hat and voila - a very cute pink themed birthday card was born.
