Black and Gold

I was feeling inspired by my Alma mater, Iowa, while I made this tutu.  It was heading up to homecoming weekend and even a few hundred miles away I still feel the pull to show my true Hawkeye colors!



SOLD – Purple

This fluffy tutu was custom made for a 5 year old and her bear got a matching one!


Spidery Fun

Spiders aren’t just for Halloween (but if you’re local in the Chicago area, it CAN be yours for Halloween for $15!)

This creepy crawly tutu is about a size 2T, but I have more spidery fabric if your spider fan is bigger than that!


This tulle and fabric tutu was custom made for an almost 3 year old.

Here we’ve attached it to leggings!  One less fight for moms and dads on a tutu wearing day!

And we made a matching one for her favorite stuffie:


Welcome to the blog for Tutoodles.  I’m Elly and I love to make things.

I started by making my own Halloween costumes in college:

From there, I couldn’t be stopped!  I keep crafting and now I want to sell what I craft.

My current craft bug is making cloth and tulle tutus, tutus for kids, for grown ups and dolls (and I suppose dogs or cats, but really…that’s up to you, I can’t be held responsible for your pet eating you in the middle of the night.)  They are really fun to make and I love putting the different fabrics and tulle together and seeing the final product!  I will list on here what is for sale and how to purchase it as well as photos of custom-made projects and what I’ve made for my kids or myself.  My husband refuses to wear things I make…

So come on this journey with me, it’s bound to be fun if nothing else!
