When my little man was just a few days old I saw that one of our local bridal shops were giving away a bag of scrap fabrics to anyone that could pick it up. It was an opportunity not to be missed and it was George's first trip out of the house since getting back from hospital.
The midwives turned up as I was sifting through all my goodies and feeding him at the same time. It pretty much sums up my parenting style - where there is a will to sew, there is always a way.
As I separated the fabrics into different piles of satin, netting, big, small I knew I would have to make some tutus with the netting but it took two years for me to finally get around to it.
Now, you can go out and buy netting quite cheaply if you haven't got a local bridal shop that are willing to give away their scraps. The lovely shop I got mine from are https://busybsbridals.co.uk/
