  • Make a Tutu Peacock Costume

    September 21, 2016 by Britex Fabrics


    This peacock tutu is so adorable that it bears a repeat! It is looking like an avian All Hallows Eve! Shauna from the creative blog, Shwin&Shwin made up a tutorial on how she created a tutu-esque peacock costume for her daughter from some knit fabric for the top, and poufy netting and felt for the tail…..and a generous dollop of talent. It would be super lovely with some sparkly sequins added to the feather eyes!  We love the way the tail bellows out, and her attention to peacock feather detail and coloring. All materials are available at Britex Fabrics; craft felt and sparklies are found on our 3rd floor!
