As long as I have know Martha, she has been making quilts to give away to people that are sick, in the hospital or who are needy. She has truly been an inspiration to me!

X-rays at the hospital show no broken bones just a really bad sprain. It has given me a new meaning to the sayings "having your home wheelchair friendly" and "cabin fever".

Measure the girl's waist and cut the piece of elastic to fit. Start cutting out the Tulle strips, depending on the size of the girl. Cut them between 24"-30" long. For the one shown in the picture I cut out 33 of them 24" long. I also cut out a total of 18 strips of ribbon the same size. 6 of each color. Fold them in half and start hand tying them onto the elastic. See the pictures below.
Continue tying them onto the elastic until it's completely filled. Use a needle and thread and blind stitch closure on the elastic.This project will take approximately 30 minutes from start to finish. You can also use two different colors of tulle, add rhinestones, make them plain without ribbon, etc. A quick and easy costume for your little pink princess!
