Last spring a friend was visiting just after our lambs were born. Watching the lambs leap and dance through the air it occurred to us that tutus were in order.
Because lambs in tutus sounded like the cutest thing we had ever imagined.
Sadly we had no tulle, so the plan was benched for the season.
With tulle for tutus in mind, Lupine and I took one very silly trip to the fabric store last month (during which we asked the hardworking woman at the cutting table how many yards of tulle it would take to sew a tutu for a lamb.) We all had a hard time holding it together, and I'm pretty sure we were here most memorable fabric cuts of the day.By the time we left with our yards and yards of ballerina pink and black tulle she made us promise to bring her photos after our project was complete.
This little number is only our test tutu. There will be more. (Many more.) There may also be fairy wings and gnome hats, but time will tell. If you'd like to see more lamb silliness I will share occasional photos on Instagram (I'm lusa_mama), and yes videos are involved.
You can also keep an eye on #lambsintutus, perhaps my favorite farm hashtag ever.
*No lambs were harmed in the production of this ballet. (Honestly, it was a bit like when we put our dog in a harness. A moment of "What's this?" followed by "Let's eat!" They didn't mind a bit.)
