I have a little friend that loves to dress up in costumes so I decided to make her a tutu. This was a good project for someone with very limited sewing skills, that being me! Measure the waste size and cut a piece of elastic 2 inches smaller. Sew the ends together by hand or using your machine. Cut out a piece of cardboard to the length you want the tutu to be.
I used 3 rolls of tulle for this. Wrap the tulle around the cardboard overlapping as you go.
Place a rubber band around the end you are going to cut to hold it in place.
Cut one end of the tulle.
You need something to put the elastic around. I cleaned this old bucket and used it.
I wanted to make this tutu very colorful so I used three different colors.
Just loop each piece of tulle under the elastic.
Push the strands through the loop.
Pull to tighten.
Then tie a knot. Keep repeating this around the elastic alternating the colors.
Viola! A tutu for a little girl. I think I need a grandbaby!
