Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Try It Tuesday: Stuffed Tutu Time

So this is me, trying new things and letting you know what tutorials around the web that I can not live without.

One of my favorite blogs was Samster Mommy, well they changed names and are now: Little Pink Monster, which I kind of love because it's cute and cuddly with a little bit of an edge. The blog is great so please check it out. The tutorials, well they work.

I followed a tutorial from Little Pink Monster on how to make these lovelies:

Little Pink Monsters Tutu Tutorial #1

And came up with this tutu:

I added some poppies for embellishment around the waste, but everything else is too the tee on the tutu tutorial.

I have to admit that I hate sewing tulle more than anything. I actually hate sewing tutu's. I thought it would be fun and easy to make a bunch for craft shows, but the bugger of the matter is, so many people buy pre-made tutu's, sell them for around $10 to $15 as homemade because they glued on some flower.  The time and money I spent making tutu's vs. the cost I could sell them at pretty much negated each other so I just occasionally whip one up for a friend or a birthday party.

Thanks for stopping bye and feel free to try out this tutu tutorial.

It's actually pretty easy, but tulle is a pain in the behind and you might end up pulling out the stitches once or twice to get it right. Again I made a bunch to sell but was priced out by people who bought wholesale and hot glued a flower on them.
