So, how would you like to make this FAB tutu? It’s a very easy make with NO SEWING involved at all!

For this one (for our 3 and a half year old) I used 1.5m orange ribbon and 2m of gold Tulle.

Using nice sharp scissors cut your tulle into 2″ strips. I then cut these in half, this part depends on the width of your tulle and how tall your small person is. Hattie is a little cutey and this tutu is going over a pair of leggins for a party at the weekend. I made it shorter so I could make it fuller.

Fold your strip in half…

Fold the loopy end over the ribbon and pull the ends through to make a slip knot

Pull tight and carry on with the next strip!

Carry on until you have enough strips to go around your little ones waist.

Tie in a pretty bow and let them run wild!

 

A few weeks ago I gave you a little glimpse of what I’ve been making for the small people’s dressing up basket. One of these was this gorgeous peacock tutu!

I used THIS TUTORIAL as a guide.

I used just 3 colours of tulle  for the tutu (2 blues and a green),

scraps of felt from my stash, as well as a bit of elastic, plain blue cotton fabric and some giant ricrak!

It didn’t take long and the girls LOVE IT!
