Do you have an Easter dress for your little princess yet? Can't find what you're looking for? Why not make her an Easter tutu?!
Awhile back I posted a tutu-tutorial and showed you how to make a tutu. You can check out the tute here. Also, I have a FABULOUS updated that a lovely reader suggested. This will make it even EASIER to make a tutu! First, find something that has twice the circumference as your desired length. It can be a book, a box, a picture frame, whatever you can find. For my 10" tutu, I use a printer paper box because it is exactly 20" around. Next, I slide a small dowel rod (you could also use a large wooden spoon, etc.) through the tulle, and I start wrapping the tulle around the box. I try not to wrap more than 30 times before I cut, because, since I sell my tutus, I like my edges to be very crisp. However, for your own personal use, you can wrap it as many times as your scissors can cut through--probably about 50. Once you have wrapped the desired amount of times, make one cut! Not 100, just one! Woo-hoo!! The end result will be a very nice, neat stack of tulle strips! So fantastic! Thanks Brook! Here are a few pics of the process I just tried to explain, but I took them myself while trying to roll, cut, etc., so I hope you can understand them! If not, just leave me a comment and I'll try harder! ;)
Here is my "Sugar and Spice" tutu. I think this looks very spring-y. What do you think?
Maybe you would like to make your own Easter tutu! If you do, I would LOVE to see it! Have fun, everyone!
