Since its Summer now and the kids are home let make it fun for them! What little girl doesnt like dress up? Tutu’s anyone?
Here is what you’ll need to make a tutu for dress up, dance or a costume for 2t-4t
- Tulle 6 inches wide by 6 yards long
- elastic 21 inches
- measuring tape
1st thing is now with the measuring tape measure the tulle 20 inches long and cut it do that till all the tulle is done.
Now for a toddle 2t – 4t for the elastic measure 21 inches and sew the other end so it makes a circle
Now its time to use the tulle we cut to use :0)
Now fold the tulle in half in front of the elastic:
Take the ends of the strips and go under the elastic and through the loop that you created
Pull this knot semi tight (now when I said “tight” at the class-some people took me EXTREMELY literally and pulled it so tight that the knot was impossible to move or undo)
You are finished with your first tutu knot!
These Tutu are perfect for any little girl or even to be given as gift.
What a way to start a summer for a little one with a little dress up time :0)
