Making your own costume can be very fun! I received a PDF download to review of a Fancy Filled Tutu with Bonus 40 Tutu "Recipes" from You Can Make This. They have all kinds of neat DIY projects including a lot of fun Halloween projects to make on their website. Their step-by-step instructions are all easy to follow and detailed. I have gotten a lot of their other FREE patterns by download to try too. The Fancy Filled Tutu pattern I received had a lot of fun ideas as well as the step-by-step instructions on how to make each tutu. My favorite is the hydrangea tutu! If you didn't know the purple/blue hydrangea are one of my favorite flowers.
Here is a video of how to make the Fancy Filled Tutu...
