One of the most popularly sewn projects in the book is number 2: The Tutu
Here's the updated PDF scoreboard where you'll see the tutu has been completed by 26 of our Little Things sewists. Second only to the Bucket Hat which 29 of us have made. However, I couldn't find a single photo of a kid wearing both at once!
While we all love sewing them, if you read the Flickr and blog comments, our little budding ballerinas seem diverse in their reactions to them. I'm not the only one whose tutu was flatly rejected at first. Thankfully some kids (my son included, and perhaps now my daughter) think they are divine.
I've made a couple of mosaics from the Flickr pool to inspire you if you haven't sewn one yet

Perhaps my favourite of all time was the stunning tutu by Supergail that formed the basis of a beautiful peacock costume. Check out the link if you've not seen it before, it's lovely!
