Hope you all had fun with last week's first ever, Combine Grind Challenge with CASE Study! Your entries were fantastic and, completely, Eva-inspired! Way to charge ahead with change! Now, how about another, fabulous, color story? Welcome to The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #70!
Maria Gurnsey; and she has, generously, donated two sets of Ippity Stamps for our winner.
here, I made my baby girl a sweet, little, Valentine tutu, using Samster Mommy's 10 Minute Tutu tutorial. It was so easy that I made several more, but then, I saw this post, by my fellow, PDCC Design Team member, Libby Hickson, and thought it was time for a tutu make-over. You see, the elastic I used for the waist bands stretched too much and separated the tulle knots, making the tutus look super funky. Not to mention, they wouldn't stay up, around my baby girl's waist, anymore. So, I took Adina's turquoise tutu all apart; thread my tulle onto a length of turquoise ribbon; tied knots, at either end, to hold my tulle in place; and used what was left of my four yards of ribbon spool to dress up the tutu, with three lengths of ribbon, between the tulle knots.
The Purl Bee's Molly's Sketchbook: Rose Barrettes tutorial (I LOVE this tutorial and have used it more times than I should, probably, admit! Check out more fun projects, that I made, using this tutorial, here, here, and here.); gave it a couple of bright green, felt leaves; and completed the look with a turquoise, saddle stitch ribbon.
AND, like I said before, please help us welcome this week's Guest Designer, Maria Gurnsey. I was just introduced to Maria's work through her spotlight in the Cafe, but in perusing through her blog, I can tell that we would get along, absolutely, brilliantly, because she loves gingham ribbons and stitching... two of my favorite things! LOL! So good to have you, Maria!
