My first Tutu & Tutorial

Well, I did it!  I made my first tutu!  My friend Henri, sent me an easy tutu tutorial video (see below) awhile back, so I thought it would perfect for a birthday gift.  Check it out!

I made this for sweet Antonia's Princess Birthday party.  Here are some pictures of beautiful Antonia in her tutu.  Thanks for the pictures, Karla!

Isn't she just precious?  I hug and squeeze her every time I see her!

I was very happy with how my first tut turned out!  It was very simple to make.

Here is what you will need:
  • 2 rolls of 6 inch by 25" tulle of either one or two colors
  • 3/4 inch Elastic for waist band
  • Scissor or rotary cutter/cutting mat
  • ruler or measuring tape
  • needle and thread or a sewing machine to make it super fast
  • coordinating ribbon to the colors of the tulle
  • roll of paper towels and pins (this is to hold the elastic as you tie on the tulle
Here is the fantastic video I followed to make the tutu:

I did the slip knot technique and I used at least 60 strips for this 4T/5T tutu.  I used every bit of the two rolls of tulle. I like how full the tutu turned out.  Once I put on all the tulle, I tied on a ribbon and made a pretty bow.

I think my first tutu was a success!

Be on the lookout for my next tutu.  I am making a ladybug tutu for my sweet Anna's first birthday!

Happy Crafting!
