Here’s another series I’ll be doing on and off: Quickie Tutorials!

Small, fun, yet informative tutorials between the lengthy ones.

Today I’m showing you how to create beautiful velvet roses from scratch! I’m creating these roses as an embellishment for the Belle gown I’m making this year.

As a child, I was obsessed with ballet. My favorite shows were Angelina Ballerina and Princess Tutu, and almost all of my stuffed animals(especially the bunnies) were ballerinas. Swan Lake and the Nutcracker were my favorite fairytales. 

And more than anything, I wanted so badly to be a ballerina. 

Of course back then, it wasn’t really an option. The classes and supplies were to expensive for kids my age. We couldn’t afford the show tutus they required you to buy. 

So that dream was tucked away. 

Years and years later, Rou encouraged me to get into Princess Tutu again <3 At once I fell in love. It’s a story I’ll always come back to with open arms. A fandom I’ll always stick with. 

My Mom’s always been so supportive of my fandoms. And lately, she’s noticed I’ve been really into Princess Tutu and ballet again. So for Christmas, she got me actual ballet lessons >v< )/

and oooooh my God am I excited. The first lesson was amazing, I can’t stop practicing. I’m in love all over again <3 I’m so, so happy to be reliving old dreams again <3 I want to become a ballerina! And it’s all thanks to Princess Tutu!

Merry Christmas @its-a-me-mary!! I was your secret santa for @homestuck-secret-santa this year <3
