16, 17, 18... 41.

The Iron Crafters have been very busy over the past few months. The last challenge I participated in was #18. They are all the way up to #41 at this point. I have been following all of their challenges and enjoying seeing the results each week. I've even had some great ideas; but, I just couldn't seem to get things together to participate since Annalise has come along.

This week's challenge, Boo, seemed doable. I already had plans to make some festive Halloween tutus with my friend, so I decided to post the pictures. My usual model, Adelaide, was busy NOT napping in her room. Annalise, who was also NOT napping today, was happy to take on the job (mostly).

I made matching leaf-colored tutus for the girls. I used alternating brown, green and dark orange tulle for the skirts. I chose these colors because I thought they would work well for Halloween; but, the skirts would wear all the way through Thanksgiving. The hats were purchased crochet caps that I embellished with silk flowers. I swapped out the flower centers for some fabric covered buttons. I wove my favorite sparkly ribbon through the hat for a little extra glamour.
