The Tutu That Almost KILLED Me...

Hey, I'll make this doll with a tutu. It'll be easy. Sure. Hey, I'll also make sure that even though using size 10 crochet cotton wasn't hard enough with the itty bitty size 7 steel hook.... I'll make sure each row has over 300 stitches. I'll also make sure that I take some crinoline and attach it with 80 gabillion pins and then hand sew it to the tutu... pleated! I couldn't stop there. I had to cover the top edge with a silky brown ribbon. 57 thousand hours later.... (Yes... drama llama.)

It was totally worth it, because it came out gorgeous. I think my Ballet Tentacle Monster is most pleased with her new outfit. At least I hope she is... (Yes, I know she's a doll... let's not judge.)

Once all the excitement was done... I managed to get 2  jars (formerlly for horseradish, which we ate like it was our job) for some new monsters under glass. Yeah!
