Who Needs a Tutu - Do You?

So who wants to make a tutu? I do, I do! I always see tutus at every crafty event that I attend. I check them out and always want to purchase one for my little girls to spin around and play dress-up with. They are really the ultimate of girly items. The problem is, is that they are so pricey that I always pass them up. I have always wanted to make my own tutus but did not have the slightest idea about how to sew with tulle or where to start guessed it, YOUTUBE!!!!! Oh, how I love this site of how-to videos! It really is such a great place to search for directions on every crafty thing that you want to try. So here is an excellent video on how to construct a no-sew tutu. I made one a few weeks back for Scout out of pink and purple tulle. The whole project cost me less than $5.00 and came out so cute. I would recommend getting the heavier tulle. The lighter weight tulle is cute and flouncy, but really gets tangled up easily. It looks more messy that the heavier weight. Hope you enjoy the video!
