“Is it all most time for me to do my routine?”
This is the question I’ve been hearing all week long.
Between me and you, she’s not quite there yet but she’s been working really hard for her upcoming ballet recital.
A for effort!
Let’s go checkout what she’s been up to.
Dolly Sewing Crush: Araki Sawako Project #3
For the 3rd project we wanted to add a dash of elegance to Hina-chan’s look, so we went to page 19 in Obitsu 11 Pattern Textbook: 11cm Size Girl Clothes and discovered a charming Tutu (Pannier).
In 2 steps you can transform your doll into a beautiful ballerina.
The directions for the Tutu are written in Japanese and include images so you can visually see the step by step instructions.
Your Layout For Sewing Success
Here is your blueprint for making the Tutu:
- Fold fabric in half length wise
- Sandwich the elastic between the fabric
- Sew next to the elastic
- Gather the fabric to the length of the doll’s waist
- Make a knot
Hurrah, the Tutu is complete!
Oh dear it looks like Hina-chan needs a little more practice before she’ll nail her routine.
At least she looks cute though . . .
Dolly Insider Skill Level Rating:
This project was short and sweet just like Hina-chan.
See you next week for the final Araki Sawako Project
