How adorable will your daughter look in this little skirt? Let the Tu Tu Tutorial show you how to create this one of a kind Tu Tu. She will be the hit of the party in this super cute sewing project.

Tu Tu Tutorial

Materials:

  • Elastic Band (1/2in - 1in)
  • Tulle
  • Ribbon

 

Instructions:

  1. First you’ll need to start out with an elastic band (1/2 in – 1 in works best). These come in packs at Jo-Ann’s for about $2. Measure your child’s waist and cut the piece of elastic 1 in bigger. Then you will sew the ends together.


  2. Next you’ll cut your tulle (use the kind on spools-found mine at HL). I cut mine 18 inches for a 3 month old. Decide how long or short you want yours and measure accordingly.


     
  3. Next you’ll tie a double knot around the elastic. I did a pattern of white-pink-white polka dot- pink – white and so on until I got all the way around. You can get creative here and do as many colors as you’d like…however I prefer to stick to 2-3 colors. Also make sure to slide the knots real close together to get the puffy tu-tu.


  4. I wanted to add just a little bit of ribbon, so I tied a thin piece of ribbon next to the polka dot tulle. So it ended up being about a 5-1 ratio or tulle to ribbon. Again get creative here. Big fat ribbon looks super cute as well.


     
  5. That’s all! Is that not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!?
