Belle Tutu

About a week ago, I stumbled upon this blog.  Don't you just love those lucky clicks of the mouse where you find yourself at a site you just love?!  The thing that lead me there was this...

Samster Mommy Tutu Drive

Samster Mommy has been hosting a Tutu Drive drive to collect dress-up clothes that will be donated to the Princess Alexa Foundation which helps children who are battling serious illnesses such as cancer.
  Please visit both sites for more details.  
I saw the Tutu Drive publicized on another blog, and I just knew that I had to participate even though the drive was nearing its end.  I quickly went out to the store to buy some tulle.  I have a confession though...  Up until this point, I've never actually sewn a tutu before.  This was the perfect opportunity to give it a try though. 
The strategy:
Figure it out as I went along

The inspiration:
Belle from Beauty and the Beast

What little girl wouldn't want to dress-up as this beautiful, book reading princess?!

The result:
This Belle Inspired Tutu that a very deserving little girl will feel like a princess in


  1. Oh this is beautiful!
    It's amazing what two sweet red roses and ribbons will do!
    love your creativity!

  2. What a sweet charity. Your tutu turned out beautifully! You must have some fun ideas for wrapping gifts, too! I hope you'll stop by my PRETTY PACKAGES PARTY and share some of your talent! Be sure to grab a button for a reminder!

  3. How pretty and sparkly! Any little girl would feel like a princess in that tutu :) Stopping by from Making the World Cuter

  4. How is it that sparkly princess skirts haven't been accepted as mainstream attire?? Ahh, to be a kid again :)
