I gave in and decided to try a holiday craft fair for selling some tutus. Actually I made all the tutus I could with the tulle I had- came to 10 total plus the one in the post below. And so I'm off to sell these labors of love in hopes they will catch some shoppers eye. I'm probably also going to make this the last big push for my hand made tutus. Bittersweet, but since I now have a part time job, tutus are taking a trunk seat in life. I will still make them as gifts for special friends and by request, but the business is a bust for now...
My toddler has seen me making many tutus for a holiday craft fair and asked why I'm making them. I told him they will be presents to which he asked if one could be his present. What's a mama to do? Make her son a tutut that's what! It's actually scraps of tulle and black but is quite cute. After all... tutus are for everyday... and everyone!
Yes the holiday season is upon us, so I thought instead of black Friday or cyber Monday... we'd have tutu Tuesday! That means all the tutus I have left are on sale for only $15! That's a sweet price for a sweet gift. There is limited quantity so act fast. Remember these are hand made! Tutus are very popular. I have seen the Gap and Old Navy versions which are nice, but not hand made.
Also in this holiday season giving back is very important. I hope to teach my 2 year old about that. We plan to give him 3 choices of charities to donate and let him decide where a family donation will go. Lastly, if you donate extra above the $15 for your tutu it will go towards the charity iEmpathize which works to free people who are being sold into the sex trade.
Happy Holidays friends and remember... tutus are for everyday!
Tutu costumes! I love them. So my baby girl had to have one. Not just the typical, princess, fairy or ballerina. Something a bit more unique and memorable. I love how it came out and how simply adorable by Baby Chicken is... because tutus are for everyday!
