and I have come full circle-back to making tutus

If you and I are friends IRL, you will know I started my lil biz by making simple clips and tutus.  Eventually I moved past tutus even though I love them.  A large reason was because there are SO many cheap tutus on the market, it was hard to compete.  There I was charging $20-30 for a super full fluffy tutu while cheap imports were $5.  No they didnt compare in terms of quality or looks but customers sometimes dont care.  Besides the cheap imports, other designers were charging too little for their skirts.  I am not in the business of losing money so I couldnt charge $15 for my skirts like other people.  So based on $, I stopped making them.  Well now I have started again but with a twist on the traditional tutu.  I am madly in love with my new loopy tutus.  I love how full and fun they are and just extra special.  It is nice to say hello to an old friend.

A peak at my new clothing

I am seriously in love with this print.  I am so excited to be offering boutique clothing again. I just love to create and make things that my own daughters would wear, pretty and functional.

Check out my first Silhouette Cameo Project

I downloaded the font from dafont and simply played around with it in the design software. Printed it on black vinyl and used transfer tape to take it from the backing to the actual tub. You can also use clear contact paper for the same purpose, which is way cheaper than transfer tape.  Beverage tub is from target and was only $15.  This one is for my mother in law's birthday. I plan on filling it with wine, cheese, cute napkins and other items she can use for entertaining.
