Rainbow Fairy

Rainbow Tutu, by Acanthus, modelled by The Elf.

Whilst I sew a range of clothes for my girlchild (because, let's face it, most mass-produced kids' clothes are a sea of vile and puke), this is one of the easiest, quickest and most effective garments I've made.

From this tututorial (har) here, at Plumtickled, you can make a basic fairy skirt or tutu for your little Maenad in half an hour, and customise it with ribbons, flowers, or, in the case of my kid, Hot Wheels cars. I was lucky enough to find rainbow tulle at my local Spotlight, then I added streamers of thin craft ribbon with rainbow bells on the end, which both amuse the wearer and function as a kind of location device for Mama.
