How to Make a TuTu

| 1 Comment

I was given the idea for this craft from this website. I take no credit for it. My friend Amberly helped me with the directions as well.

Materials:
1) 1 roll of each color of 6” tulle (25 yard rolls); I suggest 2 colors
2) 1 pack of white elastic (3/4” long); how much elasic you use depends on the size of the child you’re making a tutu for: double the size of their waist.

Directions:
Cut the tulle into strips about 26” long.

Cut the elastic and sew into a loop.

Alternate tying on strips of each color. Click the above link for a great visual on how to tie them. Do not tighten them much until you’ve completed the tutu so that you can shift and even out strips as needed.

This is probably the easiest craft I’ve ever done. It took me about 40 minutes to complete one tutu, while I watched TV, and I was pretty slow.

  1. That looks and sounds ridiculously easy! I’ve gotta give that a try someday. I’m loving this linky, Maya. :)
