How to make Luke's Scarecrow costume

Posted by Brittney Sweeney on Friday, August 28, 2009

Items need:

  1. Old jeans- one to two sizes bigger
  2. Old Flannel shirt
  3. Craft hay or straw
  4. sissors
  5. Hot glue gun
  6. Hot glue stixs
  7. Hat

               Believe it or not this costume is so budget friendly. I bought the shirt and jeans and hat at this huge goodwill store. So I think the whole costume including supplies cost less than $20. When Luke wore this costume out to the town festival everyone ohhhhed and awwwed over him. It was so funny how many people stopped us and said how great his costume was.
               Now to make the scarecrow costume. If the shirt and jeans are too big, which is best for this look, cut the sleeves to length and set extra pieces aside. You will need them again. Fold the jean legs up to length suitable for the child. Next take the extra pieces from the flannel shirt and cut a few squares out of them. Take the squares and hot glue them onto the jeans like patches.
                Next take your straw and cut to length desired for the end of the sleeves and jeans. Hot glue the straw inside the sleeve cuff and inside the jeans cuff just like above.(You may not be able to see bottom of jeans) Then take the other straw and cut to length desired for the collar of the shirt and glue straw under collar. Finally cut what straw you have left for the hat and glue around inside the hat. Let dry. Viola! You are done.....

My Fashionating dress is the most popular! aka Criss- Cross TuTu

Posted by Brittney Sweeney on Saturday, August 15, 2009
It has been quite some time since I have come out with my very popular fashionating tutu aka criss cross tutu and since then so many tutu makers have been trying to duplicate this fabulous look. I should be somewhat flattered by all the copycats but for some reason it is a little annoying. Oh well! I just love this tutu and its versitile look with the criss-cross weaving. I have made this look so many times and trying to make it a little different each time I do it. I figured it keeps the copycatters on thier toes to try to figure this one out. I guess you can say that this tutu put me on the map and got me noticed. I have been blessed to come up with a design as popular and innovative as the fashionating tutu. Just remember where it all started.

The Original Rainbow TuTu

Posted by Brittney Sweeney on Saturday, August 15, 2009

Dont be fooled by imitators. The one and only rainbow tutu is found at Abby's TuTu Factory. I love making the rainbow tutus. They are so vibrant fluffy and delicious. These tutus are perfect for those fun and lively photoshoots.
Many people try to copy and imitate my rainbow tutus but no one does it like ATF! Beware of cheap imitations!

The rainbow tutu and rainbow tutu dress are made of many many many yards of fluffy vibrant tulle. These six colors of the rainbow blend so effortlessly to make the rainbow appear luminous. The bright neon colors in the tutu are blue, green purple, pink, yellow and orange. For a more saturated rainbow like the one Rainbow Brite is know for order the rainbow with red and ask for skittles. I can make this tutu in any size or length your heart desires. To order just simply email me.
