It’s exactly how I envisioned it, and my daughter LOVES it!

When I tried snapping some photos of her yesterday, it was impossible to get a clear, smiling pic, she was far too busy twirling and twirling and twirling and twirling.Rainbow Hearts Tutu on missneriss.com - free tutorial available Rainbow Hearts Tutu on missneriss.com - free tutorial available Rainbow Hearts Tutu on missneriss.com - free tutorial availableShe’s just so happy to finally be able to wear her fabulous big princess tutu and flounce around the room like she’s off to a ball.

It’s just a shame that it’s January and freezing cold, because I imagine if she could, she’d be wearing this outfit 24 hours a day.  She did ask: “Mama, can we take this to Australia?” so I’ll have to find some space in our luggage to squeeze in the world’s poofiest tutu!

Aren’t the hearts just gorgeous?  I know I go on about it, but I just love the colour change of the Scheepjes Larra Batik.  I love that each row is a different colour and the beautiful stitch detail that the Larra gives. Rainbow Hearts Tutu on missneriss.com - free tutorial available

I hope I can find the time to take some better photos, I was much too busy enjoying the twirling to concentrate on how the photos would turn out!

And, coming soon: The tutorial!  You’ll be able to make this outfit for yourself, very soon!

New Year, New Yarn!

It’s Yarn Day!

It's Yarn Day! Larra Mercerized Cotton Yarn from Scheepjeswol

It’s cold outside, which makes me want to just curl up in my little corner and crochet.  Luckily, with the arrival of this beautiful Rainbow Larra from Scheepjeswol I can!

I love the Larra.  It’s a great weight, very durable and comes in loads of colours.  It’s a mercerized cotton, but it’s also very soft and not too shiny.  And I love colour change of the batiks, especially the Rainbow.

I love that Rainbow so much I chose the yarn before I had a project in mind!  I had to justify getting the yarn, as I just don’t have the space for more yarn that I bought because I loved it.  I did have to immediately sit down and make little cakes, just so I could be mesmerized by the colour change.  I think that’s my favourite part of winding yarn; watching the colours change.

So, my daughter is obsessed with dancing like a ballerina, but she’s not really a pastel Swan Lake kind of girl, so I’m making her a Rainbow Tutu!

I found all the tulle at my local market – super cheap, and I can’t wait to get stuck in.

Meanwhile, you can pick up the Larra at any great yarn seller here in NL, or on Deramores.com internationally.
