Tutu Design Competition Six Finalists ... Time for you to cast your vote!!

Thank you so much to all the people who submitted entries for this competition. We were overwhelmed by how creative people are and have become inspired by all of the different ideas presented. It was a difficult decision to pick the finalists as many designs were truly worthy ...

After a much debated discussion with an "expert" panel of judges (consisting of 3 family members plus myself) we have decided upon SIX finalists based on creativity, colour choice and Dianne's "ability" to recreate the design.

To cast your vote simply go to the right-hand column of this blog and click on the button next to your favourite tutu design followed by "Vote". (You are only able to vote once). Voting closes at 5.00 pm on the 28 June, 2010.

The finalists are listed below in no particular order ...

Designed by Cathy S

A classic regular length tutu made of alternating panels of tulle in the colours:
Paris Pink
Shrimp (Orange)

Designed by Davina D

A long (46 cm) length tutu made of Ivory tulle (4 layers) with Pansy tulle knotted bows around the base of the tutu

Designed by Christine P

A double layered tutu with the top layer in Hot Pink tulle and the bottom layer in Shrimp (orange) tulle

Designed by Shelly

A combination of a light weight Denim overskirt on a very fluffy White tutu underneath. The denim overskirt would be finished off with maybe a stud or two, and two or three large safty pins for decoration down one side.

Designed by Melissa B

A classic regular length tutu made of alternating panels of:
Coconut and icing - Mixture of White and Baby Pink tulle
Rasberry jam - Wide pane of Garnet (dark pink) tulle

6. Heirloom - inspired by Tania Louise Logo
Designed by Tania H

An extra fluffy regular length tutu made of alternating Lime and Amethyst panels of tulle with the upper layers of tulle adorned by a colour coordinated tiny bead sewn near the base.

Good luck to all our finalists!!

The tutu design with the most votes will be deemed the winner, and this tutu will be fabricated as the winner's prize. Two runners up prizes ($20 gift voucher) will also go to the designs with the next two highest number of votes. (See for full competition details.)

Are you a creative person, have lots of ideas or get inspired by things around you and LOVE tutus?? ... then this competition is for you!!

Over the next month Little Fish Creations is holding a CHILDREN'S TUTU DESIGN COMPETITION where you can submit your creative tutu design ideas for your chance to have your own design become a reality.


Competition is open to Australian residents only. Please show your support of Little Fish Creations by becoming a blog follower (, twitter follower (, or a facebook fan (

Submissions can be in the form of:

* a written description of style and colours,
* a drawing,
* a photo of inspiration,
* a photo of materials or elements you might like to see incorporated into the tutu, or simply
* a costume idea of how you could use a tutu

... the list is endless.

You can submit your ideas in any format as long as you get your point across (but please do not send a photo of an existing tutu as this will defeat the purpose of you using your creative spirit).

There are over 40 tulle colours available for you to select from when constructing your design.

And you should also think of a suitable name for your design, e.g. Woodland (but I am sure you can be more creative).

Stage 1:
Submissions are to be emailed using the subject "TUTU DESIGN COMP" to by the 14th June, 2010, at 5.00 pm (Eastern states). You are welcome to submit as many designs as you like, however, only one design from five different designers will be selected for the second stage of the competition.

Stage 2:
The five most unique entries will be further promoted on this blog for fans and followers to vote on. Final votes will close 28th June, 2010 at 5.00 pm (Eastern states) and the most popular tutu design will be announced on this blog and at shortly thereafter. The winner will also be contacted by email.

The winner of the most popular design will receive a tutu (child size only) made to reflect their design as best to Dianne's ability. This tutu will then be promoted using the design name given by the designer, along with the designer's name and made available for purchase exclusively at There will also be two runners up prizes ... a $20 gift voucher each to spend on any item (custom or ready made) at

So start thinking about what colours you love, look at everything around you and draw upon inspiration from your surroundings ... I am looking forward to seeing how clever everyone is and I think this competiton will be lots of fun!!
