Posh TuTu's


A Posh favorite, the apple green tutu with ribbon wrapped waistband is a darling accessory for any posh princess.  Making a tutu is easy as 1-2-3.  

To make the perfect Poofy Tutu (style pictured), you'll need the following supplies.  

75-100 yards of tulle. (Don't freak out... they come in 6'in rolls of 25yrds at your local craft store.. ie. Michaels or Hobby Lobby)

1/4in non roll elastic

needle and thread

  • First measure the waist line of your Posh Princess as well as the length you'd like the tutu to finish (usually 6-8in poofy style)
  • Cut elastic about 1in shorter than the measured waistline
  • Sew ends with needle and thread
  • Cut strips of tulle double the length the finished tutu will be plus an additional 2inches(14in strips would be cut for a 6in tutu... 6x2=12 +2=14 :)
  • Tie two strips at at time onto the elastic...double knot (Hint: use your index finger as a buffer between the elastic and the knot to ensure you don't tie too tight.... each not should be able to slide along the elastic, if not you're end product will be a nightmare.. trust me)
  • Continue to tie until elastic is completely full or all of the tulle is used, which ever comes first
Let us do the work for you... visit our site to purchase a hand tied Posh Tutu  or contact us to schedule a Posh Tutu party for your Posh Princess and friends to make their own tutu's.

Posh Converse


The definition of posh is "elegant or stylishly luxurious"....  I couldn't have come up with better words to describe Posh Sparkles.  These shoes are an absolute hit!  Everyone loves them!  They make for great gifts, are definetly attention grabbers, and can be adored for a lifetime as the perfect keepsake.  The problem seems to be getting folks to love the price just as much as the shoe.  I began embellishing shoes with rhinestones about a year ago.  Needless to say, I've gotten better with time. :) Because we've welcomed the '80's back with so much fanfare, converse shoes are very popular and a bit pricer than the days of old.  The avg. pair of toddler/kids shoes range from $24.99-$34.99.  We all know that bling isn't called bling for nothing... lol..So I'm asking for honest opinions here...  What is a fair price to market these shoes?

Posh Wear


The things I've learned how to do since that day in Wal-Mart 5months ago when my husband told me I wouldn't use the embroidery/sewing machine I was begging for.  For as long as I can remember I've been adding a "little" something to my hair, shirts, shoes, purses... whether it was to patch up a hole or make it fashionable.  Growing up, my mother couldn't afford designer clothing, but I always wanted to be cute.  Who would have known that God was just nurturing a talent that's been hidden inside me since I was a little girl.  I'm so thankful for all the times I "had to make it work with what I had"....  For me Posh is a dream come true... an opportunity to turn a plain onsie into a "must have"...  Have I mentioned how much I love what I do?  Lol :)  I don't know what the future holds, but I'm so grateful to finally be doing something I love :)

Stay tuned...  I'll be sure to post new creations...  As always I'd love your feedback
