Bitty Bitty Bows

Anna's been going crazy about Halloween, but I cannot buy one of those scratchy princess outfits from the store, and I'm not crazy about encouraging the whole Disney Princess infatuation. I don't mind princesses in general...anyway, she was a princess last year.

We came across a booth at Whimmydiddle with lovely soft tutus, made from chiffon maybe? instead of tulle?
Anna looked and looked and finally chose this yellow one, so she's going to be a ballerina bumble bee for Halloween. Much better. And the tutus were really so reasonably priced (too low, probably) so we bought a giant hair bow to match.

Bitty Bitty Bows

Supporting rural Kansas, shopping local, buying handmade, avoiding Disney Princesses, all in one perfect purchase. :)

That is wonderful! I love it.

Susan said...

What a great idea! That will be adorable.

Though not quite as adorable as a Yoshimi costume...

Did you order the wings?

I'm hoping to skip the wings...Don't know if I can get away with it.
