This is a fun, easy project that’s virtually no-sew (you sew one little line on the waistband, which could easily be done by hand). Here’s what we’ll be making:
Here’s what you’ll need for each tutu:
-Rotary Cutter and Mat (tulle is easy to cute into lots of rows with these tools!)
Cut your tulle into strips that measure 4″ by 2x the model’s waist-to-knee measurement. So, if your model’s waist-to-knee measurement is 10″ you’ll cut 4″ x 20″ strips. Lots of them.
Cut your crochet waistband 1.5″ less than your model’s waist measurement. So, if her waist is 20″ cut the waistband length of 18.5″. Sew securely with a 1/2″ inseam. Now your waistband is 2″ smaller than your model’s waist.
You’re done!! I love how the one ribbon with the shiny strip down the middle looks.
My nieces are coming to visit for Halloween to celebrate my 30th birthday (yes, I’m a Halloween baby!) so I’m working on coordinating appliqued t-shirts to match for the girls and my daughter to wear during the day on Halloween. I’m also working on a t-shirt for my son so we can get pictures of all the kids together since they only get to see each other once or twice a year so I’ll do a simple tutorial on those once they are complete.
